Emissions of political debate last weekend have been spent in part to the removal of Michele Pierre-Louis. The management of 197 million emergency fund has been at the heart of debates.
Less than 24 hours after the removal of Ms. Pierre-Louis, President of the Senate argued that the Prime Minister resigns or is involved closely or distantly in the management of $ 197 million disbursed under the Act of urgency. The "mismanagement" of funds has yet been one of the reasons for his arrest should be recalled.
"The only reproach I can do to Ms. Pierre Louis it does not require a detailed report from each minister had received an envelope," said Kelly C. Bastien.
For Mirlande Manigat, who was speaking on a station in the capital, Michele Pierre-Louis wanted the budgeted 197 million dollars, has categorically denied the Head of State. "If this money was coming in the budget, staff should report before both Houses about their spending," hammered Mirlande Manigat.
The Constitutionalist even said that Ms. Pierre-Louis has tried once to resign, but President Preval and the international community have dissuaded.
On the other hand, panelists from another program, such as former Senator John Gabriel Fortune, Paul Evans, and Me Samuel Madistin said that funds from the Emergency Law were not supported by the Prime but preferably by the Chair.
To substantiate their claims, they have suggested the creation of the new National Center of equipment that cost $ 90 million, or 45% of 197 million. The new CNE is presented as a parallel institution to MTPTC while being a political instrument in the hands of René Préval, these analysts say.
"The senators demanded explanations Lespwa on funds used for their elections. Each candidate's platform Lespwa had one million dollars to campaign and besides, we have seen, they were the only ones to giant posters here and there during the last legislative partial ", argued one panelists.
Michèle Duvivier Pierre Louis, who left the civil service, and will therefore no compulsion to shed light on this burning issue. In the meantime, Haitians will be those who, sooner or later have to pay for funds whose management was not transparent.
