Guy Philippe joins the mobilization in Port-au-Prince
Yesterday, Tuesday, a tense atmosphere prevailed in the streets of Pétion-Ville as flaming tires were placed on the road, exacerbating concerns just hours before the fateful date of February 7. This date marks the end of the interim government led by Ariel Henry, in accordance with Article 20 of the agreement of December 21, 2022.
In this context of growing nervousness, Guy Philippe made a notable appearance in Pétion-Ville. During an intervention on Radio Éclair, Philippe announced that he was in Port-au-Prince with the intention of “accompanying his people.”
This statement comes at a time when political tensions are at their peak in Haiti, with sporadic demonstrations and clashes reported in several regions of the country. The population is deeply divided on the issue of the interim government and the future direction of the country.
The announcement of Guy Philippe’s presence in Port-au-Prince could intensify fears regarding the political stability of the country.
