Prior to the coup, the opposition groups – mainly the Group of 184 and the Democratic Convergence – refused to negotiate with Aristide. At the time, Democratic Convergence leader Evans Paul stated, ‘We are willing to negotiate through which door [President Aristide] leaves the palace, through the front door or the back door.’
