26676: Morse (comment) Haitian elections (fwd)
I think we need a bit more communication from the transitional government.
I'm hearing that the elections are being postponed due to logistical problems,
(for instance getting all the voting stations set up, dispersing electoral
ID's, etc) but this needs to be stated publicly. The electorate should be
getting regular updates so that rumors don't dominate. Normally Haitians
the Christmas holidays till the 6th of January (Les Rois). Once we start
getting much past this date we're probably looking at pushing back the 7th of
February installation. Probably no big deal if we're only talking about a
couple of weeks. If it turns into a couple of months I suspect things will
to get quite awkward.
