We have been waiting since May for a new IBESR Director. the Director of IBESR is appointed by each President. Mme Bernard Pierre was appointed by President Preval. After President Martelly took office, we knew that he would probably appoint someone as soon as he formed his new government. None of us knew that it would take from May to October for him to choose a Prime Minister that both the House of Deputies and the House of Senate would approve! Finally, in October the Prime Minister was approved and the rest of the Ministers were chosen. Now, President Martelly could appoint the directors of IBESR, Immigration, etc.
Mme Bernard Pierre was replaced last week and a new director was appointed in her place. I’ve received many emails while in Canada from the members of the Association of crèches about the new director but I do not have a name yet of the new director.
I’ve read on the internet that the Son of God orphanage closure had something to do with Mme Bernard Pierre being replaced, but I have not heard that this was the reason. Like I said, we expected this to happen as soon as President Martelly’s new government was formed, because Mme Bernard Pierre was a Preval appointee.
