Haiti: UN, international partners hail formation of Government, urge 'credible' elections

The United Nations and its international partners have welcomed the formation of a new Government in Haiti one week after the country's Parliament became “dysfunctional” due to its failure to hold elections within its constitutional framework. The Secretary-General's Special Representative in Haiti, Sandra HonorĂ©, and other members of the international community represented in the “Core Group” – comprising the Ambassadors of Brazil, Canada, France, Spain, United States, and the European Union, as well as the Special Representative of the Organization of American States – today welcomed the installation of Prime Minister Evans Paul, the formation of the Government, as well as the establishment of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP).
