Haiti - Elections : The Haitian Government requests the support of Spain
The Embassy of the Republic of Haiti in Spain has sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation asking for the support of the Spanish Government in the electoral process that will conclude next February 7, 2022, in which the political staff will be renewed and it will be ensured that a new Haitian president will take office.

The letter stresses the importance of the upcoming elections for Haiti and the international community. "[...] It is well known [...] that elections are the only legal and legitimate way to come to power. Haiti is a country that faces several challenges, and in particular the crisis of the COVID-19. The political stability of our nation state depends, above all, on the proper functioning of its solid institutions and respect for democratic rules, defined through its constitution and laws. The Government has called on all political actors to coordinate their efforts to ensure the well-being of citizens and to promote the socio-economic development of the country. It is therefore important that the partners and friends of Haiti continue to support the government’s efforts to maintain and ensure the socio-political stability of the country [...]"

Given that Spain has become a very important partner, committed to the development of the Caribbean country, the support of the Spanish Government is a sign of great value, given also "[...] the efforts demonstrated by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) in creating a Spanish brand of good practices in several areas of cooperation: access to education; institutional strengthening and consolidation of democracy; fight against food insecurity by strengthening rural development; preservation of the environment; access to drinking water and sanitation; management of heritage and culture, among others."

The letter ends by emphasizing that "[...] the Constitution of the Republic of Haiti limits the presidential term to two non-consecutive five-year terms. The democratic game demands respect for this basic principle. As the Head of State said, participating in elections remains the only democratic way to come to power. And the Government counts on the firm support of the Spanish authorities to implement the electoral process and the organization of free, democratic and transparent elections."
