Haiti - Elections : Statement by the OAS General Secretariat
Friday May 29 in a note, the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) insists that the Covid-19 pandemic should remind us "the importance of strengthening, and never deviating from, democratic rules and institutions" recalling :

"As established by the founding documents of the Inter-American system, legitimate governments are produced only by free and fair elections. The electoral process and the length of presidential terms in office are the result of a previously defined calendar specified by the Constitution.

In that sense, the OAS General Secretariat urges all political forces in Haiti to find a cooperative framework in order to comply with the letter and the spirit of their constitutional order, respecting the five year presidential term in office. In this context, the term of President Jovenel Moïse ends on February 7, 2022.

The OAS General Secretariat will continue to closely follow the situation in Haiti. At the same time, the OAS remains willing and able to work with all parties involved in the search for the best solution for the people of Haiti.

Note that 48 hours before this note, the Fusion of Social Democrats had sent a correspondence to the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro to ask him to grant a dismissal of the technical assistance requested by the Haitian government to the OAS https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30861-haiti-politic-chancellor-joseph-requests-the-support-of-the-oas-for-the-elections.html
