OAS to send election observers to Haiti | GlobalPost

OASThe Organization of American States said Sunday it is preparing to send a mission to Haiti to help supervise elections ahead of its end-of-year polls.

The regional bloc’s observers intend to arrive several months in advance to help authorities register voters and then count votes, OAS special representative to Haiti Frederic Bolduc of Canada told AFP.

Haitian President Michel Martelly has previously invited the organization to send a mission to “assess the feasibility of the elections.”

The request elicited numerous complaints by opposition parties, which feel Haiti should determine its own ability to hold elections. via  | GlobalPost
