UN “Concerned” Over Political Uncertainty in Haiti

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 28, 2015

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says he is “concerned” over the political situation in Haiti.

In a statement this week, Ban said he was concerned about the “growing political uncertainty in Haiti, following the publication of the results of the 25 October elections.”

A recent scheduled run-off vote was postponed.

Ban said he called for the “urgent intensification of dialogue to ensure the transfer of power through elections, within the constitutional timeframe, maintain stability and preserve the country’s democratic gains.”

He urged the two candidates in the run-off, Jovenel Moise and Jude Celestin, to “engage in good faith with the relevant institutions to identify and implement measures to help the process move forward.”

“The Secretary-General stresses the responsibility of all political actors to discourage violence and encourage a spirit of unity throughout the country,” he said.
