Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse said he has been negotiating with the opposition for three months, but the main opposing group said Moïse has not met with its members.

“None of the structures or members of the Direction of Politics of the Democratic Opposition (DIRPOD) have met with Jovenel Moïse,” officials of DIRPOD said in a statement published on Sunday. “Once again, as he had done with the representative of the United States of America to the United Nations, he’s trying to mislead the population by claiming that he has been negotiating an agreement for three months with the opposition.”

Ambassador Kelly Craft, the United States Representative to the United Nations, had said Moïse planned to meet with members of the opposition in early October. DIRPOD also denies that.

Simon Dieuseul, a former president of the senate, said in a radio interview that members of the opposition groups have met with Moïse. Source
