Jovenel Moïse Has Not Stepped Foot in National Palace in Over 3 Weeks

Politics

Information obtained by Le Nouvelliste has shown that President Jovenel Moïse called in by phone to a Council of Ministers meeting that he convened on Monday rather than presiding in person. Le Nouvelliste learned of this through a minister at that meeting.

The information would later be confirmed by Secretary of State for Communication Eddy Jackson Alexis. Secretary Alexis said the Head of State took part in the meeting, which lasted an hour and a half, by phone.

More information would be released throughout the day regarding the Head of State's absence from the seat of power. According to sources at the National Palace it has been 3 weeks since he set foot in the building.

It is not the first time the Head of State has avoided being on Champs de Mars. Earlier in the year his visits to the National Palace were sporadic for two months. Even a meeting with a clandestine unmandated delegation from the Organization of American States (OAS) during that time was held at his private residence.

President Moise was called out by the Miami Herald's editorial board on Tuesday in a piece entitled If Haiti’s President Moïse is the leader he claims to be, he must come out of hiding — and lead.
