According to Le Nouvelliste, President Jovenel Moïse says he wants a new constitution stipulating that presidential appointments will go into effect automatically if the National Assembly does not vote for or against within 60 days. He also wants elective terms to be 5 years. “I would accept a prime minister from the opposition and a reduction in my term, but only after the adoption of a constitutional reform strengthening the presidency,” President Moïse told the Associated Press on Friday, February. 7, 2020.
