CARICOM Heads of Government have appointed an Eminent Persons Group (EPG) to represent them to extend the Community’s Good Offices to the Government of Haiti and Haitian stakeholders.
The three-member EPG consists of Former Prime Minister of The Bahamas, The Rt. Hon. Perry Christie; Former Prime Minister of Jamaica, The Hon. Bruce Golding; and Former Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Dr the Hon. Kenny D. Anthony.
The Group will initiate and oversee the Community’s provision of Good Offices support in designated priority areas, including security, governance, the electoral process, and long-term development planning and advocacy. They will also liaise with key international partners and agencies.
A Technical Team, comprised of experts from CARICOM Member States, the CARICOM Secretariat, and regional specialised agencies, will support the Group.

This is a good move. I am also of the view that in terms of elections there should be a look at Haiti’s Constitution and by this, I mean amending their Constitution – one of the areas being the Presidential powers to reflect the type of power structure which is available in the region to this power struggle which exists between the Prime Minister and Presidential positions today. I believe this is one of the main things.
When Haiti became a sovereign state there were no role model nations in the region and they being “drawn down” from France they only had Kings to model their Presidents after and most of the region drew down from Great Britain and still have a level of colonial attachment The system of governance – Democracy in the region Haiti’s should be made to look like one of these fully sovereign nations like Dominic – template and now Barbados – two of the nations that are fully sovereign and their template can be used – presidential/prime Minister.
Thanks but no thanks. Too Westminister based corrupted feudal democracy that doesn’t work.
