The collective of parties of January 30 represented at the Presidential Transitional Council (CPT) by Mr. Edgard Leblanc Fils, wrote to its representative acting as President and/or Coordinator of the College. In this correspondence, the member parties of this collective expressed their reservation on the Resolution, published by the Council, supporting a rotating presidency at the level of the CPT. For the collective, this document is tainted with formal and substantive defects.

The January 30 collective does not approve of the idea of ​​the rotating presidency adopted by the Council. For the signatories of the collective, this Resolution is tainted by substantive and formal defects and endangers the existence and viability of the Presidential Council.

The reasons given by the collective are multiple. They cite, among other things: the impossibility of calling into question through a Resolution the legal status of state organ conferred on the CPT by the decree of April 12, 2024; the clarification of article 3 of the said decree which stipulates that the Council is headed by one of its members chosen by consensus or by majority; the compliance of the decision of April 30, 2024 with the aforementioned decree.

They further specify in this correspondence that the agreement of April 3, 2024 makes no reference to a qualified majority and a rotating presidency. They also specify that article 4 of the agreement of April 3 clearly underlined that the Presidential Council assumes in a collegial manner the orientation and management of the CPT. They also clarified with regard to Haitian laws that presidential powers are exercised in a shared manner with the Government.

The collective finally criticizes Article 4 of the Resolution which violates the spirit and letter of the agreement of April 3, which appears to be a subtle attempt to subordinate the CPT to particular and partisan interests. The collective, however, says it is attached to the consensual process initiated on March 11, 2024. It demands from the CPT scrupulous respect for the conditions of existence and validity of legal acts.
