In Haiti, The law is always flaunted by those who swear to uphold it, and this why political turmoil and political impasse are the scourge the nation.

Haiti is a country of men and not of laws.
Every Haitian, whomsoever he maybe, and whatever is his social standing in the society, should cherish the constitution and ensure that it remain the highest law of the country, and be guided by it accordingly.

That maxim: "Konstitisyon se papye...Bayonet se fe..." whoever said it, and however famous it might have been at the time of its ennunciation, should be regarded as a step in antiquity, and an affront to law and order.

It tells the politicians, and the military in particular that they can diasregard the law because they have guns and ammunitions to rule - the gun is mightier than the law. If the constitution states that the term of the presidency is five (5) years and in February 7, following the date of the election; then, article: 149 should be set in motion in adherence to the constitution.

There should be no deviation.
