OAS secretary general urges parliamentarians in Haiti to fully assume their responsibilities
Published on June 18, 2016Email To Friend    Print Version

WASHINGTON, USA -- The secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, said he has noted with great concern that the Haitian National Assembly has failed to pronounce within the terms set forth by the February 5 Agreement on the extension or not of the mandate of the interim president or, as the case may be, on other measures to insure institutional continuity.

He urged parliamentarians, in their capacity of elected representatives of the people, to fully assume their responsibilities by meeting in National Assembly to decide on how to best guarantee institutional stability and the continuation of the elections process.

As evidenced by the just concluded OAS General Assembly, the continuation of elections in Haiti in a stable and calm atmosphere is a priority for the hemispheric organization, Almagro pointed out.

"It is long past time for Haitian political stakeholders to prioritize the interests of the nation in order for the aspirations of the people to finally be heard and for the country to be in a position to tackle the great socio-economic challenges it faces," he said.
