We intend to fight for the passage of a set of urgent laws that the country is waiting for. Among them, let us note the law on the PNH, on nationality, on the minimum wage, and especially a law on the moralization of public life. Some are rightly concerned about the avalanche of decrees passed by President Moise in the absence of a parliament. The En Avant movement intends to pronounce on the legal validity of the said Decrees with regard to the legal ordering established by the Haitian Constitution which is at the top of the hierarchy of legal norms. While it is true that a body of legislation has been neglected by the legislature, it is nonetheless true that an executive branch alone cannot impose legal texts on a country.
The En Avant movement calls for a careful analysis of the said decrees in order to assess their merits. Some will simply have to be approved by the next legislatures. Particular attention will be given to the new penal code, contested and criticized by more than one for its articles deemed to be incorrect. A penal code must be the result of collective societal reflection and not the result of the whims of a group or a sector.
