Haiti Politics - How can a parliament be dysfunctional when there are 10 senators left?

How can a parliament be dysfunctional when there are 10 senators left?

There will be no quorum to approve any laws, or make resolutions, but there is a presence.

In the US, when the senate is on vacation and to prevent the president to make appointments without the senators, the group leaves behind a senator to open and close the session, thus preventing the Executive from making any decision.

Do not demonize the opposition by blindly following your government, one day you may be in their position.

I do not like the gridlock, but that is democracy, the worst form of government after dictatorship.

Let us be civil and at the same time learn the new style of government.

We, Haitians, have a tendency to be dictators, and cannot stand being challenged when we have the power.

Out of it, we think it is okay to have right to challenge the authorities.
