More than three days after the formation of the third government of Jean-Michel Lapin, the Senate has not yet set a date for the presentation of the general policy of the appointed Prime Minister. Until Friday, May 24, the Senate Speaker was in discussion with the four opposition senators to try to find a way out of the crisis. In the Chamber of Deputies, the majority is active to vote the general policy of Rabbit.
"If I were in the place of the president, I would change the government because I think we must find a solution to move forward ...", urged a senator close to the head of state. "I can not wait indefinitely, I am currently on my way to my department since no date has yet been retained for the presentation of the general policy of the appointed Prime Minister," said the senator of the Great South who, generally, aligns with the position of Jovenel Moses.
Many meetings have taken place between senators to reach an agreement on the process of ratification, but nothing is certain yet, he said. This parliamentarian, who requests anonymity, believes that the Senate should avoid the hideous spectacle offered to the public on Tuesday, May 14 during the second attempt to present the general policy of Rabbit.
For their part, the four opposition senators maintain their position, namely: "the presentation to the Senate of a full ministerial cabinet and no accumulation of positions; the "withdrawal from the ministerial cabinet of the ministers who were part of the government of Jean-Henry Ceant", the "making available to the group of 4 of the files of all the ministers for a thorough examination" and, finally, the "convening of urgency of a Conference of Presidents to the extraordinary to rule on the belligerent behavior of Senator Joseph Lambert with respect to their colleague Ricard Pierre at the meeting of May 14, 2019.
"As I speak to you, we are in discussion with the President of the Senate who is embarrassed by the decision of Jovenel Moses to form a third government that does not take into account our demands," said Friday at the Nouvelliste Senator Evalière Beauplan.
According to the parliamentarian opposing the ruling power, Senate President Carl Murat Cantave has always wanted to find a way out of the crisis with the group of 4 senators, but the decision of the head of state has complicated the situation. Evalière Beauplan emphasized that they are for dialogue. "But we are setting conditions for dialogue," he said.
