Haitian Prime Minister condemns corruption and ineffectiveness

Port-au-Prince, Haiti.- Haiti’s Prime Minister, Garry Conille, criticized the country’s public administration for poor governance, lack of transparency, and widespread corruption, labeling the state as “completely ineffective.” He outlined his concerns and proposed corrective actions during a press conference in Port-au-Prince following the appointment of two new cabinet members.

Conille disclosed alarming figures, stating that up to 30% of state employees receive salaries without fulfilling their duties, emphasizing the urgent need for corrective measures. The newly appointed ministers, Marie Chantal Dumay and Hervil Gaspard, will focus on cleaning up state institutions and combating corruption, as well as addressing humanitarian issues.

“We are committed to immediate actions to enhance transparency and ensure public participation,” Conille affirmed, pledging to regain citizens’ trust in the government. He acknowledged Haiti’s challenges in security, humanitarian aid, and economic recovery, attributing many issues to systemic corruption and ineffective governance within the state structure.

Conille stressed the necessity for a government that actively opposes corruption and effectively serves its citizens, promising forthcoming initiatives such as restructuring debit card distribution and implementing a national anti-corruption strategy.

“Our goal is to establish a functioning state that operates in the best interests of the population,” Conille concluded, underscoring the urgency of reform to restore confidence in Haiti’s governance and administration.
