Prime Minister Céant calls for immediate Truce in Haiti
Prime Minister Jean-Henry Céant has called for a truce to street demonstrations by opposition parties as the country prepare to celebrate Christmas and holiday season.
“I appeal to the patriotism of all, to surpass ourselves so as to offer the population a climate of lull to allow him to approaching these feasts with more serenity,” Céant said.
In making his call for the truce, Céant said “our divergences, whatever their motivations and legitimacy may be, have basically very little weight against the harsh reality of our collective dismay”.
His statement follows a similar call made by 40 political parties closely associated with the government that adopted a joint declaration signed in Pétion-ville, calling for a Christmas truce.
