Haiti - Politic : The referendum and the elections maintained until now
The new Prime Minister Ariel Henry intends to continue the major projects of President Jovenel Moïse, in particular the referendum and the elections. Knowing how important the referendum on a new Constitution was to the late President Jovenel Moïse, for whom the balance of power and the inclusion of the diaspora in political life were the two most important points, the Prime Minister, Henry, met on Thursday the members of the Independent Advisory Committee for the elaboration of the new Constitution which had to hand over the text of the new Constitution to him before the assassination of the Head of State.

It was for the Head of Government to inquire about the status of this project which will be on the agenda of the national dialogue initiated with different sectors.

The referendum and the presidential, legislative and municipal elections scheduled for September 26 have been maintained so far.

At the same time, in a correspondence from the Office for the Protection of the Citizen (OPC) addressed to Prime Minister Henry, Renan Hédouville, the Québec Ombudsman, wrote "[...] I would like to draw your attention to the need to continue, without delay, a series of important files that can promote the establishment of the rule of law, the consolidation of democracy in the country with obviously the participation of all the girls and all the sons of Haiti both inside than outside. This is the question of the adoption of the new Constitution, the process of which has already been initiated and the achievement of free, honest, transparent, credible and inclusive elections with a view to the renewal of political staff who can pave the way to the effective functioning of democratic and republican institutions, a sine qua non condition for stability and progress."

For Mathias Pierre, the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, in charge of electoral issues and relations with political parties "The General Elections and the Constitutional Referendum are not an option but an obligation to get Haiti out of the impasse, even after the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse. The Government has no choice but to summon the people to elect their leaders before 2022."
