Haiti News FLASH: Interpellation of Prime Minister this morning in the Senate

Prime Minister Jean-Henry Ceant who was in Morocco where he participated at the invitation of King Mohammed VI at the Crans Montana Forum and who is expected to return home on the evening of Tuesday, March 19, would have shortened his visit and should go to the Senate of the Republic this morning at 8:00 for his interpellation session.

Remember that these are 9 senators (Youri Latortue (AAA)
Jean-Marie Salomon Junior (OPL), Jacques Sauveur Jean (PHTK), Nenel Cassy (LAVALAS), Ricard Pierre (Pitit Dessalin), Antonio Cheramy (VERITE), Évalière Beauplan (PONT), Larêche Ronald (VERITE), Sénatus Jean Renel (Ligue Dessalinienne)) who decided to interpellate the Prime Minister and two of his ministers: Jean Roudy Aly (Justice) and Jean Marie Reynaldo Brunet (Interior), September 20.

The Prime Minister's choice to stand first in the Senate is strategic with respect to the likelihood of a vote of no confidence in each House of Parliament. Recall that if the upper house grants a vote of confidence to Céant, it can not be interpellated before 6 months. On the other hand, the probability of a vote of no confidence in the lower house is important, since the request for an interpellation comes from 70 deputies close to the Head of State and a vote of no confidence would cause the fall of the Prime Minister and his Government.
