..."On August 30, a broad coalition of Haitian lawmakers and civil society groups signed the Montana Accord, a political agreement that would put in place a two-year transitional government.
The agreement includes naming a transitional president and prime minister, as well as establishing a transitional council tasked with rebuilding state institutions. Some 418 civil society organisations, 105 popular organisations, 85 political parties and groups, and 313 individuals have signed on to the document.

But the pact is not without its challenges, as it specifically excludes sectors with ties to the governing party that supports Henry, as well as those with clear ties to criminal gangs.

What has Henry said about the Accord?​

Henry opposes the agreement and has advanced his own political accord that would allow him to continue to serve as prime minister without a president until the next elections are held.
In a statement published on social media on Monday, Henry said that he is open to dialogue with supporters of the Montana Accord, as well as other initiatives. He also said that “very soon” Haiti would have a “credible” provisional electoral council."...


A few notes

AlJazzera is a government funded news source from Qatar. One of their reporters was turned away from the US Embassy in Haiti, even though she was American (I was welcomed and able to sit down with representatives for almost an hour)

I have found their reporting on Haiti to be accurate and insightful- FAR more informative than even the Miami Herald here which has the best news on Haiti here in the USA... CERTAINLY more insightful and informative in the NYT.

Brian Concannon, quoted in the article, was the personal lawyer for Aristide. But the Bureau of lawyers that he continues to run in Haiti has done a lot of work on behalf of those considered political prisoners.


The Montana Accord has not been published in English - as far as I can find - https://crshc.ht/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2021/09/accord-crshcht.pdf

..."The suspect, Rodolphe Jaar, a Haitian businessman and former drug trafficker, admitted to providing weapons and logistical support for the plot, according to court documents unsealed during his hearing on Thursday.
The United States is increasingly assuming a leading role in investigating the president’s death, as questions mount over the Haitian authorities’ ability and willingness to get to the bottom of the crime.
Mr. Jaar, 49, was taken into U.S. custody on Wednesday following six months on the run. He agreed to come to the United States voluntarily after being detained in the Dominican Republic earlier this month, according to the prosecutors."...

And - HERE -- we have the link to the sitting Prime Minister - Ariel Henry

..."But new evidence suggests that Mr. Henry maintained communications with a prime suspect in the case — and that the two stayed in close contact even after the murder."....

which confirms all the rumors that this was planned INSIDE the PHTK - Jovenel's political party
