Opposition political parties yesterday vowed to resume their street protests today in a bid to remove President Jovenel Moise from office.
The opposition parties, buoyed by the turnout over the past few days, said that the protests would be held today and tomorrow even as the Speaker of the Senate, Carl Murat Cantave, called a meeting for Sunday of all legislators to address the “political situation” in the French-speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country.
“I invite all the political groups of the Senate to be represented to an important meeting which will take place this Sunday, September 29,” Cantave said in his invitation, adding “it’s an organised meeting with the different political tendencies of the great body to discuss our differences and especially address the political situation.
“The time is serious, the Senate has its word to say,” he said.
The Bishops of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of Haiti (CECH), in a September 27 letter to Moise and other senior State officials called on them to act immediately to stem the violence in the country.
