Martelly Third Haiti Prime Minister Choice - Garry Conille

IT'S OFFICIAL.. Haiti President Michel Martelly picked Garry Conille as his third nominee for the post of Prime Minister of Haiti. Who is Garry Conille? What is his link to Bill Clinton? Is he eligible?

Garry Conille

Garry Conille is a former chief of staff for U.S. President Bill Clinton in his position as the U.N. special envoy for Haiti. Conille holds a master's degree from the University of North Carolina and a doctorate from the State University of Haiti.

Is Conille Eligible?
Well... There is one little problem...

Garry Conille has not lived in Haiti for five consecutive years and according to article 157-5 of the Haitian constitution, "To be appointed Prime Minister, a person must have resided in the country for five (5) consecutive years."

The five year constitutional roadblock...

In a message posted a couple of days ago on BelPolitik, Mac Handal says: "The Diaspora hopes the re-incorporation of all Haitians in Haitian affairs. The manipulated Haitian constitution of 1986 has excluded of many Haitian citizens."

Well... As they say...
La loi est dur mais la loi c'est la loi!

What if "La Loi" is retarding progress?

The associated press says that Garry Conille "could meet opposition as he goes before parliament for approval."


Will Garry Conille be aproved or will be be rejected?

I am sure President Martelly is aware of the "five year" thing... so why did he pick Garry Conille?

I see your point Patricia.

By the way, can any one tell me what Anacacis or any ot the other senators have voted that made sense for the advancement and betterment of the people.

There is also the consitutional idea that someone must reside in the country for 5 years to be eligible to hold certain political offices.

Mr Anacacis said: he's not going to vote to ratify Dr Garry Conille because of the constitution.

My question to him is what the constitution said:regarding the foreign Army that have been in the land for years and they are raping young girls and boys?.So many people die with the cholera, and thousands of them infected with the virus.What he is going to do about that?

I need an answer as soon as possible thank

Let try not to be too partisan.

None of us can be proud of what our leaders did to our country.They were all robbers for the most...

Duvaliers as well as Aristide and Preval were from the same gang.They were the same with only one difference.

Brother, a country cannot be ruled based on what you just said.The constitution must be respected...

We got Duvalier, Aristide, and preval, all dictators because they did not apply the principles of people's constitution.

If Martelly misses this very first opportunity, we anticipate a dictatorship in Haiti.

Friends, I need to know did anyone of you checked if Mr Jean-Max Bellerive have a double nationality or did he live in Haiti for five consecutive years before he was ratified as a Prime Minister?.Another point I need to make we can desagree on all the issues regarding Haiti, but we still have to respect each other opinion.For you to called your brothers or your sisters stupid just because they have a different opinion that is really unacceptable.
