Haiti crisis: the country continues with no president or senate, it is now an anarchy

PoliticsHaiti crisis: the country continues with no president or senate, it is now an anarchy

A nation long plagued by natural disasters and political unrest, Haiti is facing probably its greatest challenge in decades as its fragmented government, which lacks democratically elected representatives, attempts to map a course ahead in the face of gang violence and a cholera outbreak. The constitutional term of Haiti’s de facto leader, Prime Minister Ariel Henry, which some questioned from the start because he was never formally sworn in, expired over a year ago. As of today, it is safe to say that the country has devolved into anarchy, with gangs operating throughout the country.

Since the brutal assassination of Jovenel Mose in 2021, the country has been without a president. Its Senate should have 30 members, and its lower legislative body should have 119 members; all of these seats are vacant. In 2020, all of Haiti’s elected mayors were reappointed or replaced.

In a speech to the U.N. in 2022, the president of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader, said that the Dominican Republic cannot carry alone the problems of its neighboring country.
