Haiti Elections Delays - Obama Administration, frustrated, tries to break the gridlock

Haitian voters in Haiti were supposed to go to the polls on 26 October 26 to vote... That didn't happen... The Obama Administration is frustrated about this and decided to send Thomas Shannon, one of its leading experts, to Haiti to meet with government and opposition leaders in the hope of breaking the political stalemate that has held up the balloting, the Miami Herald reports... Will that help?

According to the Miami Herald, Thomas Shannon is scheduled to arrive in Port-au-Prince Thursday, 30 October 2014.

During the visit, Thomas Shannon will meet with Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, Roman Catholic Cardinal Chibly Langlois, parliamentarians and political party leaders. He will also meet with Sandra Honoré, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's special representative in Haiti.

The Elections delay is a complicated issue in Haiti right now... President Martelly seems to be doing everything he can so Elections, long overdue, can be held in Haiti; however, he does not seem to be doing it the way the opposition wants...

In Haiti, there is no "meet me half way," no compromises, it's my way or the highway. Elections are on Hold and politicians are playing a game of "whose fault is it?" instead of making things happen...

Can Thomas Shannon of the Obama Administration play that game?

Will his visit to Haiti solve the elections problem Haiti is facing right now?
