The leader of the country Jovenel Moïse, who has not been recognized since February 7 as legitimate by the opposition, confronts, with the escape on Thursday of 400 prisoners in a prison in Port-au-Prince, a catastrophic security situation.

The mutiny came to remind him how the country is out of his control. On Thursday, some 400 detainees escaped from a prison in the capital, killing 25 people including the director. This fiasco highlights the security record of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, 52, on an ejection seat for three weeks. He maintains that his mandate runs until February 7, 2022. This former CEO specializing in the export of bananas was elected in 2015 in a ballot canceled for fraud, then elected again a year later.

But he also brought a warning. © Patrick Semansky / AP Under ex-President Donald Trump , the relationship between Europe and USA has cooled significantly. There is great concern that the partnership under his successor Joe Biden will not find its way back to its old harmony.

There are no more deputies

But the opposition, which considers that his five-year mandate dates from the first ballot and not from his entry into office, no longer recognizes him as the legitimate president. Jovenel Moïse may have proclaimed Monday before the UN Security Council that "democracy was doing well in Haiti", the situation seems to escape him. Since the beginning of the month, the majority of schools in the capital have kept the door closed, welcoming students being perceived as support for the power in place.

For a year, Haiti has mostly had no deputies, and only a third of the senators is still in office. Gang violence has even increased by more than 200% in 2020, according to the deputy US ambassador on the spot, who is calling for elections to be held "as soon as possible to restore the constitutional role of Parliament".
