Haiti - FLASH : The United States alongside Martelly, even in case of failure of the agreement
Statement of the US Embassy in Haiti on the Political Impasse :
"The U.S. Government strongly supports the efforts by President Martelly to arrive at a global political consensus to resolve the political impasse in Haiti. The U.S. Government notes with grave concern that despite the President's wide-ranging concessions, parliament has not voted an electoral law to allow for 2015 elections. In the short time remaining before the constitutionally mandated end of the current parliament on January 12, we urge all parties to agree on a framework for parliamentary mandates, a new Provisional Electoral Council, passage of amendments to the electoral law, and the formation of a government of consensus. The USG strongly urges the parties to find a solution which ensures continuity of Haiti's republican institutions in accordance with the Constitution. However, if such a solution cannot be reached by January 12, the U.S. will continue to work with President Martelly and whatever legitimate Haitian government institutions remain to safeguard the significant gains we have achieved together since the January 12, 2010 earthquake. The Haitian people have the right to elect their leaders, and in these circumstances the U.S. would expect the President to use his executive powers responsibly to organize inclusive, credible and transparent elections, in an expeditious manner."
