Haiti Senator Steven Benoit says that President Michel Martelly beginning to realize that Haitian Senators and Deputees are really the ones in POWER in Haiti.


Haiti Palais Legislatif

Tout bon wi...

In an article published by the Associated Press, Haiti Senator Steven Benoit is quoted as saying:

"He [Pesident Michel Martelly] is learning the hard way... He's realizing parliament is the number one power."

This comment was made in regards to the stalemate in the walls of the Haitian parliament between the presdent, his choices for prime minister of Haiti, and the majority of senators and deputees who simply say "Hell NO..."

And you thoght that being president of Haiti mean you are the man and you can do whatever you want...

Question:

Do you agree or disagree with the statement by Haitian Senator Steven Benoit?

Is the Legislative Branch of the Haitian government (Senateurs and Deputes) really the NUMBER ONE POWER in Haiti?

Yes my friend, you are right.

It seems that the main mission of the parliament is to destroy the nation for ever. I can hardly understand that senators and others from the lower chamber could be so dumb to act like that. By the way, your name sounds familiar to me. Where are you

The Constitution was manipulated to exclude:

Haitian like Wiclef ( Diaspora )
Haitian like Gourse ( Strict serieux )

In that case, I disagree with Steven Benoit.

More we have conflict in the country concerning the Government; more Haitian people will pay the consequences.

I hope that this is not Steven Benoit's word, because he knows what is the meaning of suffering for the society.

HELLO MARTINE: THANKS FOR REPLYING TO MY INPUT.WHEN THE WORD DIVISION IS AROUND BY ANY MEANS NOTHINGS WILL WORKOUT THE PARLIAMENT AND THE EXECUTIVE AS TO FIND A WAY TO PUT THEM SELF TOGETHER ANOTHER TO ACHIEVE WHAT NECESSARY FOR THIS ISLAND.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING IT WILL NEVER BE A NON DIVIDED POWER ON THIS ISLAND.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS TO PUT A LIMIT ON WHAT THE PARLIAMENT CAN DO AND CAN NOT DO AND LEAVE THE REST TO THE EXECUTIVE, THAT WAY WITH A CLEAR VISION OF THE DEMOCRACY THE EXECUTIVE WILL ACT ACCORDINGLY BY SIMPLY CONSULTING THE PARLIAMENT FOR ADVICE AN A PROPER MANOR.

ISAAC: WE ARE IN BASIC AGREEMENT ON THE ISSUE.

THE MAIN THING IS THAT THERE IS A DIVISION OF POWER THAT IN HAITI DOES NOT WORK OUT BECAUSE OF HISTORICAL CONSIDERATIONS.

NO QUESTION ABOUT THE NECESSITY OF CONSULTATION WITH THE PARLAMENTARIANS> THAT IS DEMOCRACY WITHOUT DESORDER.

You most have a clit between your legs stead of a shaft.
