In his Offices

Mr President of the Chamber of Deputies

Breaking News: Lawmakers give Haitian Prime minister 24 hrs to submit documents of new ministers

While recognizing and sharing the principle of responding to the requests of parliamentarians in the context of their constitutional functions, I question the procedure followed by the honorable deputies in the circumstances.

Indeed, not in conflict with the Chamber of Deputies or any honorable Deputies, ignoring this new procedure of summons initiated by the applicants for the request for documents of the members of the Government and being always available and ready to fulfill my constitutional obligations to Parliament, I am compelled to defer to you for the conduct of this file.

I take this opportunity to renew to you, Mr. President of the Chamber of Deputies, the assurance of my highest consideration."
