Prime Minister Ariel Henry has postponed the elections on at least two occasions, without yet setting a date to hold the elections.
Amid the political crisis that has rocked Haiti since the July 2021 assassination of then-president Jovenel Moïse, opposition leader Fritz Alphnose Jean denied that an agreement had been reached with the current interim government.
“I can discuss with everyone the need to find a solution to the crisis, but beyond talking about having signed an agreement, we have not yet reached that,” he told the Gazette news portal.
On August 30, 2022, the Montana Agreement entered into force, an agreement between different organizations and civic, religious and political leaders that seeks that a provisional government relieve Prime Minister Ariel Henry and call elections.
The group appointed the former governor of Banco de la Republica, Fritz Jean, as president of the new provisional government, who indicated that the group is open to dialogue so that an agreement is reached and democratic elections are held.
The economist stressed that in order to achieve stability, it is necessary to address with the international community the support that the country requires in matters of poverty and insecurity“Otherwise the transition will fail,” he said.
