Dozens of Haitian organizations demand Moise's resignation

A group of 107 Haitian social, political and economic organizations and institutions called for Friday the resignation of the country's president, Jovenel Moise, through a document in which they propose a "National rescue government and a successful transition".

"On behalf of the Haitian nation, we address you, Mr. President of the Republic, to recognize the bankruptcy of your management in public affairs and to ask you to surrender your resignation to the nation," the statement said.

Employers, farmers, women and youth organizations, community organizations, human rights organizations and trade unions are the main signatories of the document.

"Haiti is in a chaotic situation that announces an imminent humanitarian disaster," denounced those entities, while stating that the government has lost control of the state apparatus.

These organizations invite all sectors to join in a single block of solidarity around their approach, to engage in an in-depth debate with a view to finding a lasting solution to the crisis.

They also asked all socio-political forces in the country to respond to their position and assume their responsibilities, "act as responsible citizens" and accept the sacrifices necessary to resolve the crisis.

Other signatory organizations include the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Haiti; the Association of Haitian Industries; Anti-Corruption Trade Union Brigade, Unified Movement of Haitian Carriers; National Voodoo Confederation of Haiti; Association of Small Haitian Peasants and National Platform of Transport Unions.

In this document, the signatories agree that society must participate in the establishment of a political agreement whose main objective is to establish and support a peaceful and orderly transition.

These organizations advocate, in particular, for the restoration of public order, the recovery of public administration and the regularization of the operation of public services.

Similarly, the application of an emergency program for the most vulnerable groups, the relaunching of economic activities, the orderly management of public finances, the follow-up of the files related to the management of Petrocaribe funds and any other file related to corruption and misappropriation of public goods.
