President Jovenel Moise in favor of another Haitian Constitution

Haitian president Jovenel Moise is pleading for a new constitution in Haiti, a constitution that will give the president more power.

Konstitisyon Se Papye, Bayonet Se Fe

Does a Haitian president really has the power to get things done?

Often times you hear in Haiti that "le president est mineur," it is a term used to say the president of Haiti is only a figurehead with no real constitutional power. The president is the chief of state, the Prime Minister is the head or government, hence the man with the real power to get things done.

Haiti Constitution Creole

"Haiti is tired with this Constitution," President Jovenel Moise said.

"Not only is the Constitution a source of political crisis for the country, but it is also incompatible with our culture."

"The Haitian people is a presidential people. Everything that does not work is attributed to the president. All the problems in the country are the responsibility of the president. Yet the Constitution grants extremely limited powers to the President of the Republic, " Jovenel Moise said.

The president made it ver clear:

"I'm not talking about a constitutional amendment today," he said, "I am talking about a constitutional revision, because Haiti is ungovernable with this Constitution."

"When I speak of constitutional revision, I want it to be clear in everyone's mind, it is not for President Jovenel, it is the next President who will benefit from this constitutional amendment."
