The Haitian Prime Minister, Jack Guy Lafontant, has find himself lately in a very precarious position, following his summoning by 16 lawmakers to appear before parliament and give explanations on his non respect of many commitments he took during his confirmation hearing.


Two weeks ago, lawmakers gave President Jovenel Moise and Prime Minister, Jack Guy Lafontant, a 24 hours ultimatum to reshuffle the government or face a non confidence vote. Following the reshuffling of the cabinet, even though the President said that he was not going to do so; lawmakers again summoned the Prime minister, this time for having violated the constitution as well as the 2017-2018 Finance law.
