The members of the Association having to communicate, like each sector concerned, a choice of 2 names of citizens as possible representatives in consultation with Association of independent media of Haiti (AMIH) However, the ANMH could not be present at this invitation, President Sampeur being on a trip abroad and his Vice President Robert Denis, was kidnapped on Tuesday...

The Chef de Cabinet Saturné recalls in his correspondence to the ANMH that, "[...] The criteria are always the same : to be Haitian, to reside in the country, to enjoy an excellent reputation and to have never been sentenced to a sentence afflictive or infamous, have a university level, justify ten years of professional experience, have a legal or administrative training, or a good knowledge of electoral issues" underlining "The Government is well aware of the fact that the improvement of the security environment is a prerequisite for the organization of elections. We are working to provide our security forces with the necessary means and training to put them in a position to deal effectively with the current situation. Preparing for good elections takes a long time. It is important that the electoral body starts working as soon as possible, with a view to restoring its structures across the country."

The ANMH has received the correspondence from Saturné and the Council should decide on the follow-up to be given to this correspondence.
