Secretary General Almagro said that, despite the difficulties, the setting of the dates for the elections “is evidence of the democratic commitment of Haiti and this impels us to work closely to offer the maximum guarantees when ballot counting, and which lies at the very essence of democracy.”
Foreign Minister Renauld said the signing of the agreement is an expression of the will of the President Michel Martelly, to accompany the work of the Provisional Electoral Council, the body responsible for organizing and carrying out the elections.
“I wish to recall that the government of Haiti supports and assists the Council, but does not intervene in its work. Therefore, the signing of this agreement again reaffirms the determination of President Martelly not to intervene in council affairs and decisions, and to support the electoral calendar”, said Renauld. via — MercoPress
