Jean Max Bellerive, Do not expect elections in Haiti any time soon

Jean Max Bellerive who is the chief of staff to President Jocelerme Privert stated that it is impossible to conduct the elections in 24 days or on on April 24, as the agreement of March 6 requires. According to agreement signed by former President Michel Martelly, Jocelerme Privert and Cholzer Chancy, the second round of the presidential and legislative elections is supposed to be held on April 24, 2016. Some people are accusing the government of Jocelerme Privert for not moving fast enough with the election process, suggesting that they are creating all kind of tactics to remain in power past the deadline in the agreement.


Mr. Bellerive admit that the government will have to return to the Haitian Parliament for any possible extension. However, he also stated that there are many tasks that remain in order to establish trust among the population in the electoral process.

The simple translation to all that: "The process will take anywhere from one to two years before we can have an elected president at the National Palace in Haiti"
