US Congresswoman Calls on Haiti to Solve “Electoral Crisis”

“Accountability requires oversight in Congress and in the donor community,” she said. “It also requires effective political institutions and stable, just and democratic governance in Haiti. Reconstruction and development require organization, planning, and oversight. These are functions that are properly carried out by a government.” The Congresswoman said Haiti was currently facing an “electoral crisis,” citing the failure of Haiti’s government to formalize a Permanent Electoral Council necessary for holding legislative elections. – Caribbean Journal
