Top OAS Officials Work to Find Solution to Political Crisis in Haiti
December 17, 2010

Two days after Haiti's President Rene Preval requested technical assistance from the Organization of American States (OAS) for the verification of the disputed election results, the Secretary General of the OAS, Jose Miguel Insulza has asked President Preval to delay the announcement of the final results, which were due on Monday 20th December, 2010.

The delay will allow the OAS to prepare a team of technical experts to head into Haiti to reinforce the Joint Electoral Observation Mission in an effort to verify the electoral documents and results provided to the Tabulation Center.

Preval has agreed to submit the OAS request to Haiti's Provisional Electoral Council (CEP).

OAS Assistant Secretary General Ambassador Albert Ramdin travelled himself to Haiti this week, with the hope of finding a solution to the political impasse in the country. Ramdin held more than a dozen high level meetings with major stakeholders, including the top three (3) Presidential candidates, Mirlande Manigat, Jude Celestin and Michel Martelly. Assistant Secretary General Ramdin, also held intense discussions with Haitian President Rene Preval, officials of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), experts at the Tabulation Center, Civil Society groups, the Private Sector, the head of the Joint Electoral Observation Mission Colin Granderson, the Head of MINUSTAH, Edmond Mulet and several country Ambassadors resident in Haiti.

Upon his return to DC Ramdin described the situation to a core group of stakeholders, saying that an urgent solution is needed to prevent further instability in Haiti. Ramdin also announced that in spite of "extreme and opposing political views" the top 3 Presidential candidates have indicated a willingness to dialogue collectively on the general political situation, and listen to the proposals about the verification of the electoral process.

OAS technical experts are expected to travel to Haiti next week and join the experts of the JEOM which are already there. According to Assistant Secretary General Ramdin, "the mission can only be successful if it is allowed to have access to all information to make its own independent assessments."

THREE (3) Questions for you...

1 - What do you think will come out of this ordeal?

2 - Will the Haitian people be satisfied with the winner?

3 - Will the looser pack his bags and call it quits?

Moin tande et moin kompren neg lakay, Min essaye kompren moin tou leum di ke se pa kon ya yap manje nou tou cri (ou oue sa map di'en).

The only possible thing for them to do, is to wait until February 7 for preval to finish his term.The big smoking gun is to put in place a provisional Prez until an election is possible.

Haitian people should have a cool head, i see alot of people talk rubish about DR army.just let get the facts strait DR army don't have enough balls to handle Haitian people, with an Haitian army or not we will defeat them. we need to makes sure preval leave Haiti after his term and don't let aristide step itself back in Haiti.

Wake my people! do you remember what the ambassador from the dominican republic said in in a speach in haiti last year?

the u.s., france and canada want to unify the island into one nation.

why do you think they are giving all the help to the dominican republic?

the other problem that we have with Haiti is that it has been isolated because Haiti for the most part is illiterate, most of the people are made to believe that Creole is a language.

where can you use that language on the international front to negotiate, Its time that we get rid of Creole as a language, otherwise we are facing another problem, we are gone have two classes of people in Haiti, those that speak french and are accepted globally and those that speak creole and are not able to communicate with anyone globally.

This election is a joke, this has the problem with Haiti forever, whenever a president gets in there, they do not want to leave.

Considering the the amount of money that is scheduled to be given to Haiti for reconstruction Preval figured he will have his son in law run for president so they can get some of that money.

I am not surprised of the outcome of this election.
