Haiti: EOM/OAS Calls for Political Dialogue to Complete Electoral Process

  January 23, 2016

The Electoral Observation Mission of the Organization of American States (EOM/OAS) in Haiti today called on all political stakeholders to engage in a consensual, constructive dialogue to overcome the current political crisis and complete the electoral process.

The appeal follows the decision of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) to suspend the presidential run-off scheduled for January 24 "in the face of a deteriorating security environment and threats to the electoral process."

The Mission strongly condemns the acts of violence across the country, including the incidents that have directly affected OAS observers during their deployment.

The Mission will continue to monitor the situation in Haiti.
