Haiti - FLASH : The election date becomes uncertain...
After having published his new electoral calendar fixing the new date of the next election on 20 November, originally scheduled October 9, postponed because of the passage of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti, the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) today shows less assured to be able to carry out these elections because of the extent of damage to the electoral infrastructure (nearly 300 centres) and many access roads, while nothing is happening on the ground at the level of shared responsibility of the Government.

In a letter dated October 27 denier [resembling an ultimatum] addressed to the President de facto Jocelerme Privert, Léopold Berlanger, the President of the CEP gives 10 days to the Government to make functional the 280 damaged voting Centres, make passable the access roads leading to other 161 Centres, provide a voting card to voters who lost their CIN after the hurricane and release forty schools used as voting Centre but temporarily occupied by victims, OTHERWISE there will be no elections November 20, 2016, Berlanger is clear on this point "Convinced that only the expedited execution of these provisions will allow to respect the indispensable deadline of 20 November for the elections, the CEP remains mobilized to collaborate with the executive to accomplish this goal," concluded Berlanger.

According to the Electoral Adviser Jean Simon Saint-Hubert, if elections are not held on 20 November, the CEP will have to take a decision based on its mission, implying without saying, that another failure could lead to the mass resignation of the CEP.
