Haiti Calls for OAS’s Assistance in Holding General Elections

SANTO DOMINGO – Haitian Foreign Minister Pierrot Delienne asked the Organization of American States on Tuesday for assistance in holding general elections in October.

In an address to the OAS General Assembly in Santo Domingo, the Haitian official requested the participation of the member states to “once again” help carry out elections.

Last week, the Haitian Provisional Electoral Council tossed the 2015 presidential election results and called for new elections on Oct. 9, with a run-off, if necessary, on Jan. 8, 2017.

Delienne said Haiti had an electoral calendar in place and the elections would be “free,” “honest” and “transparent.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told the OAS General Assembly that it was time for Haiti to move forward and overcome its challenges.

On Oct. 25, Haiti held general elections, but the opposition alleged the results were fraudulent.

The run-off election was postponed three times.

In February, President Michel Martelly ended his five-year term without an elected successor.

Senate President Jocelerme Privert took office as interim president.
