Haiti Elections - By Arrêté présidentiel, Martelly invites the population to go out and vote on 26 October

Haiti President Michel Martelly has just an Executive Order (Arrêté présidentiel) to inviet Haitian voters to go out and vote in this year's elections set for 26 October 2014. on that day, the people will elect two thirds of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputees is to have 112 members

This Executive Order came out after attempts of dialogue between President Martelly and the Senators have failed.

"The Executive is tired of making concessions, it is time for action," Porte-Parole Lucien Jura said during the press conference at the National Palace

These elections also include the municipal councils (konsey municipal yo, KAZEK, AZEK, Délégué de ville) and communal assemblies (asanble kominal yo) which are set to be held on 28 Nov 2014.

These elections will be based on the the electoral law (lwa elektoral) which was voted by the chamber of Deputees and still awaiting a senate decision as required by the El Rancho accord, Jura said

Although the president has issued this executive order, Jura says, he is still open for discussions.

It's interesting and by no means funny when a president chooses to take on the role of the almighty to govern by decree/executive order.

An autocracy is not a democracy even when you paint it pink. It's lipstick on a pig. It's an insult and a provocation to anyone with any sense of self worth.

The legislative branch ie the senators and the deputies along with the people ie all of us folks without power which they represent are being ridiculed.
