Haiti - Elections : Important dates of the Electoral Timetable
Wednesday at the Hotel Karibe Convention Center, the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) presented to some 300 representatives of parties, groups and alliances of political parties, its revised proposal provisional of Electoral Timetable. This timetable is not final, the dates proposed could undergo possible changes, however, it has a good chance of being selected as most political organizations seems to approve it.

Among the major parties, INITE, has indicated its acceptance in full of the electoral timetable while Fanmi Lavalas Electoral considers that this Electoral Timetable is not a good idea. Fanmi Lavalas believes that the proposed electoral period is too long, the political parties will not have the sufficient financial resources to participate in a lengthy electoral process and that this election period, represents prolonged risk to the stability of the country.

Most political parties believe that the CEP should have resolved beforehand, the issue of members of Departmental Electoral Offices (BED) and Communal Electoral Offices (BEC) before working on an electoral timetable. They want the CEP conducts a new recruitment for the members challenged of BEC and BED.

Note that the "Patriotic Movement for Democratic Opposition" (MOPOD), a group of opposition parties and the "platform Piti Desalin" of the former Senator Moïse Jean-Charles did not take part in the meeting.

The final Timetable should be known in the coming days.
