Opposition Parties Blank Request from OAS Regarding Election in Haiti
Opposition parties in Haiti say they do not support a recent call by the Secretary-General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almargo, that legislative elections should be held in the country by the end of January next year.
The so-called “Democratic and Popular” movement in a statement said it has rejected the call by the OAS for the organization of elections in January 2021, reaffirming its position that “no elections with Jovenel Moïse.
“No cohabitation with PHTK and allies. The solution lies in mobilizing and setting up a …transition,” the opposition grouping said.
The opposition parties have been staging street protests calling for Moise to step down from office, but the Head of State has refused offering a unity administration, telling Haitians in the past “together, let’s set out to make this crisis an opportunity to truly, once and for all, put Haiti on the road to development”.
Media reports here said that in his letter to President Jovenel Moise, the OAS Secretary General said It is imperative to organize the legislative elections at the latest, at the end of January of the next year, to restore, in all serenity, a functional Parliament.
