General coordinator of the Organization of People in Struggle (OPL), Haiti’s largest opposition party: “The CEP could be the first step towards a political agreement. If that is the case, and if it can be done that way, then we are ready to analyze the OAS procedures.”

Deplores OAS silence on police and repression in Haiti. “When we see that mayors and courts in different regions of the country act like agents of repression, we therefore consider that what was done in the OAS general assembly was very careless.”
