Haiti Politic News: The MINUJUSTH encourages to continue the efforts

Ms. Helen La Lime, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General and head of the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH), welcomes the ratification by the Parliament of Prime Minister Jean-Henry Céant General Policy Declaration and his installation in office today. Ms. La Lime also wishes to commend the efforts by S.E.M. President Jovenel Moïse, the President of the Senate, Mr. Joseph Lambert, and the President of the Lower Chamber, Mr. Gary Bodeau, that led to a constructive dialogue between the Executive and the Legislative and allowed an agreement for the installation of the new Prime Minister and his Government to be reached.

The head of MINUJUSTH reiterates the United Nations' commitment to continue its partnership with the Haitian authorities to implement the Mission's mandate as part of the exit strategy, built in collaboration with national authorities, for a transition toward a United Nations presence in the country without peacekeeping operations by the end of 2019.

Ms. La Lime encourages all stakeholders to continue their efforts in strengthening the rule of law institutions in the country, consolidating the professionalization of the National Police of Haiti, promoting and protecting human rights, as well as fostering sustainable economic and social development, within the framework of President Moise's seven priority axes and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
