Haiti - Politic : American pressure on Conille to form an Electoral Council
Brian Nichols, US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, speaking after a meeting between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Haitian Prime Minister Garry Conille in Washington, called on the Prime Minister to give priority to the formation of an electoral council "This critical step toward will give the Haitian people an opportunity to select their leaders democratically for the first time in years," said Nichols

While acknowledging Conille's efforts to improve security conditions in Haiti, Nichols emphasized the urgent need to create an electoral council as a prerequisite for holding elections. The non-renewable mandate of the Transitional Presidential Council (CPT) expires on February 7, 2026, the date on which a new President must be elected and invested.

Separately, during Tuesday's meeting, Blinken and Conille discussed steps to deploy a UN-backed multinational force aimed at combating gang violence in Haiti. The first contingent of Kenyan police officers has already been deployed to Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-42632-haiti-flash-kenyans-are-in-haiti-video.html
