All the Haitian deputes currently on vacation have been convoked to an Extraordinary General Assembly by president Jovenel Moise to decide on the choice for members of the Permanent Electoral Council, among other things.

During this general assembly scheduled for Monday 23 October, 2017, parliament is supposed to rule on their choice of 3 of the 9 members who are suppose to make up the new permanent electoral council (CEP) in Haiti as prescribed by the Haitian constitution.

Parliament is also scheduled to ratify certain treaties between Haiti and the United States and other government.

Among other things in the schedule is the the new proposition to modify article 149 of the 29 September 2005 decree related to income tax (impôt sur le revenu) in order to adjust the minimum tax bracket from 60,000 Haitian gourdes (HTG) to 120,000(HTG). In other words people make over 120,000(HTG) instead of 60,000(HTG) would have to pay income tax.
