CNN Exclusive: Haiti’s Transitional Council Awaits the Go-Ahead, Only PM Henry Holds the Key!

With the turn of events in Haiti following the assassination of the nation’s president, Jovenel Moïse, several political scores have been unsettled and the political stability of the nation hangs in the balance. A major focus of this dialogue and question is about who occupies the position of power – power to make significant decisions, to sign legal documents, and essentially steer the nation towards recovery and away from a potential crisis. Specifically, it falls on the shoulders of who can sign off on Haiti’s transitional council. In response to this, the office of the embattled Prime Minister Ariel Henry has released a statement to CNN suggesting that only he (Henry) can sign off on the nation’s transitional council.

In Haiti’s current political atmosphere, the transitional council stands as a significant step towards rebuilding the nation’s democratic structure and re-establishing political stability.

Yet, as far as Henry’s office is concerned, the ratified appointment by the late President puts Henry in the rightful position to sign off on the transitional council.

The proposed transitional council’s role, as the name suggests, is transitory. To guide Haiti through an interim period towards a democratically-elected government. This council would not only ensure a smooth transition but also strive to restore law, order and economic stability to the nation. As such, the person alleviating this council holds the delicate duty of setting a precedent for stability and democratic governance that the subsequent government will continue.

Nevertheless, Ariel Henry’s contention regarding his ability to sign off on the transitional council does demand national and international recognition. Without this, his legal jurisdiction could
