More about Haiti
- USAERS: Modern history of Haiti from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
According to the constitution of March 29, 1987 (last amended in 2012), Haiti is a presidential republic. The head of state is the president, who is directly elected for 5 years (no immediate re-election possible). The constitution provides for a system of separation of powers between the president, the government chaired by the prime minister appointed by the head of state and parliament. The legislature lies with the bicameral parliament, consisting of the House of Representatives (119 members, elected for four years) and the Senate (30 members, elected for six years; one third of the senators are re-elected every two years).
The national flag, which Haiti flied between 1822 and 1964, was reintroduced in 1986 after the fall of the Duvalier regime. It is horizontally striped blue over red with the national coat of arms in a white field in the middle. The blue-red color of the flag is intended to remind of the city of Paris and its role in the French Revolution. Today the blue color is interpreted as a symbol for the population that has won their freedom through their blood (the red stripe).
The coat of arms, adopted in 1807, shows a palm tree with a Phrygian cap on its top. The palm was the slave’s symbol of freedom, it stands on green land, surrounded by military trophies (rifles, national flags, cannons, drums) as well as anchors and mast tips with red pennants of sunken ships, symbols of the freedom struggle against the French at the beginning of the 19th century. The motto on the banner is “L’union fait la force” (unity makes you strong).
The national holiday on January 1st commemorates the proclamation of independence in 1804.
Important parties and alliances in the multifaceted political spectrum include: Parti Haïtien Tèt Kale (PHTK), Verité, Organization du peuple en lutte (OPL), Konvansyon Inite Demokratie (KID), Fanmi Lavalas (FL), Ayiti An Aksyon (AAA), Réseau Bouclier National (Bouclier), Ligue Alternative pour le Progrès et l’Emancipation Haïtienne (LAPEH), Inite Patriyotik (IP) and Platform Pitit Desalin (PPD).
After the coup in 1994, the army and police were disbanded, after which a new paramilitary police force (Police National d’Haiti, abbreviation PNH) of 2,000 men was set up with the help of the USA.
Haiti is divided into 10 departments, which are further subdivided into arrondissements and municipalities.
The formal legal system follows the French model. The highest instance is the Court of Cassation (Cour de Cassation) in Port-au-Prince with twelve judges (ten year term of office), five appellate courts (Cour d’Appel), 15 civil and local courts of justice (Tribunal de Paix or Juge de Paix) are subordinate). The judges are appointed by the President of the Republic. For certain administrative matters there is a Higher Accounting and Administrative Court (Cour Supérieure des Comptes et du Contentieux Administratif).
The school system, organized according to the French model, includes free public schools and fee-based (mostly Catholic) private schools. School attendance is compulsory between the ages of 6 and 12 (Ecole Fondamentale); it is followed by the overwhelming number of children, but the number of children decreases according to the ascending class. Of the primary school students only around a third reach the final exam in the 6th grade. The secondary schools, which are also six years old, are attended by only 20% of the students in one year. In addition to the University of Port-au-Prince (Université d’Haïti) there are several church and private universities.
The media landscape is shaped by the countless radio stations. Print media are not widely used.
Press: The only daily newspapers in the capital are »Le Matin« (founded in 1908) and »Le Nouvelliste« (founded in 1898), both in French. In the USA (New York, Florida) several Haitian weekly newspapers are published, often in several languages.
News agency: Agence Haïtienne de Presse (AHP).
Radio: The state company “Radio Télévision Nationale d’Haïti” (TNH, founded in 1979) broadcasts television programs in French, Creole and Spanish. There are also more than 300 private radio stations, most of which broadcast in Creole, and more than 60 private television stations, most of which have a limited range. The oldest cable TV station is “Télé Haiti” (founded in 1959).
