joe_biden_01Vice President Joe Biden says he’s disappointed that Haiti’s parliament failed to pass a law needed to organize long-delayed elections before parliament’s term ended this week.

Biden spoke on Friday with Haitian President Michel Martelly. The White House says Biden offered U.S. support for Martelly and his efforts to organize elections this year so Haitians can elect their representatives democratically. Biden says Martelly made important concessions in his attempt to reach a consensus among Haiti’s political parties. via – NYTimes.com.
