The private sector in Haiti calls for political dialogue

Gérard Laborde, head of Legal Regulation and Corporate Affairs at Digicel Haiti, called for calm and suggested a real public debate so that the parties could present their views.

In his opinion, this would be a first step towards reaching a dialogue, because only calm will allow us to reach a consensus.

Laborde stressed, quoted by Radio Metropole Haiti, that it is not about winners or losers, but rather about an agreement that puts an end to the suffering experienced by the population and other actors in society.

Haiti has been in the hands of criminal gangs for months, especially since the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July 2021.

On December 21, 2022, an agreement was signed stipulating that Prime Minister Ariel Henry would remain in power for 14 months, to hand it over on February 7 of the current year.

It was necessary to form a new government, establish a temporary electoral council, and organize the upcoming elections.

Given the silence on the matter and the absence of a position that satisfied their critics, opponents began promoting protests and calling for a popular uprising.
