Danies official mission to Haiti this week expressed concern about the situation.

We do not understand that whenever there is a conflict people want to overthrow the president, he says, calling for respect for democratic principles concerning respect of the elected.

According to the envoy of the U.S. government challenges against the mandate of the Head of the state are likely to reduce the effectiveness of his action as a representative of the people abroad.

The support for the Obama administration to President Martelly is justified by the positive results recorded in recent months. There is progress in Haiti, suggested Mr. Danies stressing that relations between the Haitian and U.S. governments are strong.

If they comply with the mandate of the Head of State, Mr. Danies is willing to work also with the legislators. Some are elected for 6 years, others for 4 years, we will continue to work with them, he said.
