Haiti - Elections : Concerns of the Observation Mission
The JEOM (Joint Election Observation Mission), joint mission of OAS/CARICOM, in Haiti, continues to follow the second phase of the campaign which began last Oct. 15.

The JEOM is concerned about incidents of violence related to elections held in recent weeks and invites candidates to campaign in a calm and show tolerance and mutual respect.

The Mission reminds the political parties and the candidates that in accordance with Article 115.1 of the Electoral Law, they must inform the Haitian National Police (PNH) two days in advance of any public gathering in order to avoid any untoward situations. In this way they will contribute to the maintenance of a security environment.

The JEOM reiterates its concern with regard to the use of state resources during the election campaign. The Mission renews its appeal to the political parties to adhere to the provisions aimed at guaranteeing the fairness of the election race. The state authorities must take a firm position against those who infringe these provisions and ensure that agents of the state are not involved in activities related to campaigning as underlined in Article 121 of the Electoral Law.

Article 115.1
At public meetings, candidates should, for security purposes, notify the police forty-eight (48) hours in advance, indicating the place, day, date and time.

Article 121
An agent of the public authority cannot, in the exercising of its functions, to devote itself to any activity of electioneering propaganda in favor of one or several candidates, one or several parties, political grouping or regroupings of political parties.
