Haiti - How can we be talking about elections in a country where the safety of its citizens is at play?

Under the new administration of Ariel Henry in Haiti, the leadership is blind and deaf to all other topics except signing political accords and a new electoral council (CEP).

Some people are questioning whether or not this should be the priority right now.

"With the current situation in Haiti, what will a new electoral council do except waste government funds?" Josue Lexidor, a journalis and political analyst said.

In a country where insecurity is rampant, you can't even get in and out of Port-au-Prince without fearing for your life and politicians and government officials are only focused on political accords and talking about elections.

Can elections be held in a country that is unsafe.

How will candidates be able to campaign around the country?

And the voters... if you wake up today, you have no idea how your day will end. You dont know if you will be kidnapped, or worse, killed especially if you live in the capital.

Some political analysts say elections cannot be the talk of the town right in this situation and prime minister Ariel Henry needs to take notice.
