Statement of the US Embassy in Haiti on the Political Impasse

The U.S. Government strongly supports the efforts by President Martelly to arrive at a global political consensus to resolve the political impasse in Haiti. The U.S. Government notes with grave concern that despite the President's wide-ranging concessions, parliament has not voted an electoral law to allow for 2015 elections.

In the short time remaining before the constitutionally mandated end of the current parliament on January 12, we urge all parties to agree on a framework for parliamentary mandates, a new Provisional Electoral Council, passage of amendments to the electoral law, and the formation of a government of consensus.

The USG strongly urges the parties to find a solution which ensures continuity of Haiti's republican institutions in accordance with the Constitution.

However, if such a solution cannot be reached by January 12, the U.S. will continue to work with President Martelly and whatever legitimate Haitian government institutions remain to safeguard the significant gains we have achieved together since the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

The Haitian people have the right to elect their leaders, and in these circumstances the U.S. would expect the President to use his executive powers responsibly to organize inclusive, credible and transparent elections, in an expeditious manner.

Les sous-hommes politiciens haïtiens ont tout sape: les espérances d'un peuple qui ne demande rien que seulement un mieux-être.

Le président de mon pays a tout donné pour faire avancer la barque nationale mais malheureusement les turriferaires de certaines visions idéologiques abjectes ont préféré défendre leurs personnels que ceux de la majorité .Aux grands mots, les grands remèdes.

Le Président de mon pays doit utiliser les provisions constitutionnelles légales pour conduire le pays vers des élections crédibles seules portes de gouverna imite

The opposition in Haiti doesn't know what good for Haiti.

Everyone is fighting for power so they can enrich themselves.

They don't really care for the country.

THE UNITED STATES HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO. THERE WILL BE NO REPRESENTATIVE OFFICIALS ANYWHERE BUT THE PRESIDENT.

IMAGINE THIS COUNTRY HAVING NO SENATORS, NO HOUSE MEMBERS, NO STATE GOVERNORS, NO STATE SENATORS/HOUSE MEMBERS, NO CITY MAYORS, NO COUNTY MANAGERS AND DOWN THE LINE....

LIKE WE SAY IN KREYOL, EVERY OWL WILL HAVE TO FEND FOR ITSELF.
