Haiti Chamber of Deputies passed amended electoral law

Without much surprise to anyone, Haiti's lower chamber of deputies passed the amended electoral law on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Will the Haitian do the same?

The El Rancho Accord

I don't think so!

The El Rancho agreement signed on March 14 and 19, 2014 between the Executive and the Legislative Powers, as well as several Political Parties under the auspices of the Episcopal Conference of Haiti is taking its course. As the executive branch is currently under some heat to hold election this year, they are now doing all in their capacity to make it happen.

Now it is up to the Senate to vote on the amended electoral law. We all know already that there are six of the 20 Senators who completely objects to the El Rancho agreement. Does anyone know how this will end up? Will article 12 be implemented?

"Article 12: In cases where amendments to the electoral law planned and proposed in the framework of the dialogue are not passed by the two branches of Parliament within the period prescribed in section eight (8) of this Agreement, the Parties note with the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) the physical impossibility of applying Articles referred."
