Haiti forms electoral panel for overdue polls – BBC News

Meanwhile, anti-government demonstrators again took to the streets of the capital to demand the resignation of President Martelly, accusing him of trying to be a dictator and dragging his feet on elections.

Mr Martelly denies the accusations.

Earlier this week, Haiti’s new government was sworn in.

The president praised the “pluralism” at the centre of the new cabinet and said it was down to the “goodwill” of the opposition.

But opposition leaders accuse the president of failing to deliver on forming a consensus government.

Mr Martelly has been in power since 2011 and has pledged not to change the constitution to seek a second term. via BBC News
