Nicolas Duvalier, Jean-Claude Duvalier’s son, clearly expressed his position in relation to what the opponents of the “Tèt Kale” regime call “an ordered departure” of Jovenel Moise. Duvalier, who many believe will be a presidential contender in 2022, is against the idea that a democratically-elected president be ousted from power. Though he mentions that the executive branch has been unable to meet the expectations of the population, he believes that Moise can’t be ordered to relinquish his duties.

“The President can always do it if he deems it necessary. But I’m not here to ask either,” he said. At the same time, Duvalier says he is not insensitive to the cry of the Haitian population who took to the streets to march in protest against poverty, and misery in the country, among other things.

“We are all affected by the problems facing the country these days because we are all in the same boat. I believe it is not too late to organize an inter-Haitian dialogue to collectively resolve this crisis that has lasted far too long,” Duvalier adds. Furthermore, he criticized the behavior of some elected officials who are protesting and demanding the resignation of the President while they know better than anyone the legal procedures to initiate.

  1. Sandra says:

    Why is the Haitian Times giving voice to the very people who have led Haiti down this path of perperual disfunction and poverty? Why don’t you give voice to people who genuinely and actually seek permanent and sytemic change for Haiti’s people? Do we have no memory? It cannot always be business as usual. How many more generations of Haiti’s people have to be lost before we get it.

  2. I also stand against the impeachment of President Jovenel Moise. Haïti remained a cash cow to few peoples who have full control of the entire wealth of the nation for over 10 décades. In addition, they didn’t do anything good for the Country nor creating any jobs, schools to the needy. This groupe of vultures control they Banks, they Commerces, Industries, Markets, Roads contracts, Fuels, Oils, Electricity, and etc. They don’t pay taxes while having access to their free douanes. They don’t leave anything for the minorities contractors. That must be stop to change this monopoly systems. Enough is Enough. Minorities have no values to anything good such as: No chances to bitting over any governments jobs. Always those in power; Senators, Députés, parlementaires, who have had control to gain access to the entire government jobs. Haïti stand on Quid- PRO-QUO system and only parlementaires construction companies have gotten all the bidding jobs. Us minorities have gotten no chances to survival. Ladies and Gentlemen, these 10 vultures who kidnapped, and hold Haiti in slavery must be stopped or leave Haiti.

    This is the system for sûre President Jovenel’s fighting to change. They paid over billions of dollars of cash to put the mass of innocent people out of streets to burnt Haïti until President Jovenel’s leavings. Senators and Députés contract will be soon overdue; they’ll do everything to burnt the entire Country in order to remains in power. I say yes to keep the President onto power.
