Dr. Kenny Anthony-Led CARICOM Group Ends Fourth Haiti Visit


The Dr. Kenny Anthony-led Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Eminent Persons Group (EPG) has concluded its fourth visit to Haiti amid the deteriorating security situation in the country.

On its latest visit, the EPG said the group concluded a week of ‘intense negotiations’ involving Haitian stakeholders.

The group indicated that the talks regarded a framework agreement to provide a transitional Government arrangement ‘to take the troubled country to free and fair elections’.

In addition to former Saint Lucia Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony, the EPG includes former Prime Ministers Bruce Golding and Perry Christie of Jamaica and the Bahamas, respectively.

The EPG statement said representatives of a broad cross-section of political and civil society stakeholders, including Prime Minister Ariel Henry, attended the negotiations.

The document’s authors said the talks provided an opportunity for narrowing differences regarding details of the transitional governance arrangement.

“The draft framework agreement that formed the basis of the negotiations was prepared by the EPG and reflected the contributions of all the stakeholders over more than five months of consultations,” the release disclosed.

It revealed that the stakeholders achieved consensus on several aspects of the draft framework.

They also agreed to continue discussions on key balance of power areas and representation within the transitional arrangements in the EPG’s absence.

“The EPG indicated their willingness to return to Haiti once the stakeholders have made significant progress in their informal discussions and provide a clear indication of their readiness to enter the last phase of negotiations,” the EPG statement said.

  1. The guy is unable to fix the issues in Vieux Fort but he is leading a team in Haiti did I get that right???

  2. Had it been a Bajan former prime Minister who was leading the team, Bajan would be boasting that person, but a St. Lucian is leading all ignorant people have condemned him.
    Jealousy is a crime in this country.

  3. Lydia shut your ignorant mouth. What on earth does it have to do with who is leading who. What praise is there in that. VF is the worst district presently where crime/murder is concerned. Years now and it’s getting worse. What has KDA done, said? Where is his influence or leadership. WHERE? He hasn’t fixed/addressed any of these issues. How the hell can he fix this form or murder and destruction, disorder and discord in another man’s country. What weight does his words hold. What is wrong with you LABOR HACKS. Get politics out of it, think sensibly and rationally

  4. Onlooker… I agree with you 500%. The whole of Barbados has not experienced what haVieux Fortians has gone through. Kenny has no influence anymore.Charity begins at home. Go fix things in your constituency and St. Lucia first.

  5. KDA Past Prime Minister and representative of Vieux Fort South for 26 years.
    PJP Current Prime Minister and representative of Castries East for 26 years.

    What are the results in those areas?

  6. Onlooker, you are a coward. Don’t come under the disguise name of Onlooker, identify yourself. I wrote my full name Lydia Estaphane. Lies and corruption might be your Motto, hence you don’t want to identify yourself.
