Nicolas Duvalier Against Forced Removal of President Jovenel Moise

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.

    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.

      Nicolas Duvalier was only an infant when he departed to France in exile with his parents; he shouldn’t have to pay for what his family had done to Haiti. To be honest, Haiti was in a better position during the Duvalier’s regime eventhough things were remained stationary.

        I remembered when I was a kid in Port-au-Prince on Jean Claude Duvalier life was better I went out any time to club with my friends walking in the street ,no kidnapping ,no rape no killing except people that in government businesses , after that if you not in business with the government you fine ,I was much happier when I was in Haiti back then ,for long time no electricity’s 24 hours , no freedom to go anywhere with out looking your shoulder food was cheap Port-au-Prince was cleaned no body rape , because the leader was very care for Haiti and for the diasporas and the images of Haiti.Haiti was not ugly like it is now, Haiti used to call la pearl Des Antilles .so is worse and every body has something negative to say about Haiti .is not better when Duvalier Left .it is the worse and worse I used to think it will be now I lost faith completely when I hear the kidnapping take over Haiti the rape , the killing every day and nothing has done about as long the authority has his own security , the rest of the people can get kill or be in jail in they own home.

  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.
