The En Avant movement unequivocally opts for parliamentary and representative democracy, believing that this system is the only one that can boast permanent legitimacy. Beyond the flaws inherent in the rules of the democratic game, flaws which, under certain conditions, magnify to the point of threatening this regime, it remains clear that the democratic system remains the least bad among those in force in the world. To make our democracy live fully and prevent its abuses, we must remain vigilant, especially since political patronage and corruption remain two social and political phenomena that are very widespread in current democracies, particularly in Haiti. Their very existence undermines the theoretical principles of democracy and gradually destroys democratic values and behavior, leading to the disaffection of a large part of the population.
Equality, fraternity, freedom of opinion and expression: this is what founds democracy as a superior principle of social organization. The freedom of the press and the independence of the judiciary are notably the guarantors of this. In the institutional field, we want an effective separation between legislative and executive power. We refuse to believe that the fate of our country is tied to the emergence of a providential messiah.
Our project is more than ever that of democracy and our sovereign remains the people. We fight for the application of international labor conventions, to guarantee freedom of association. We will also make the creation of wealth and the principles of social justice the foundation of our democracy. Some recent developments are disturbing, in particular the violent dispersions of peaceful demonstrations. Our fight will always be to preserve democracy and human rights.
