Can the new interim Haitian government hold timely elections?

An accord signed February 5 requires Haiti’s interim government to hold elections by April 24, and a new elected president to take office by May 14. The entire process was delayed, however, when Parliament voted against interim president Privert’s pick for Prime Minister. Parliament has just approved of Privert’s second choice, Enex Jean-Charles, but even he admits that April 24 is probably too soon to hold the next election.  Many Haitians are also calling for a verification of the previous rounds of elections, which the international community has opposed because it would further slow the process. Members of Parliament have also opposed the verification for political reasons. Part of the article is below. Click HERE for the full text.

Competing Political Interests May Result in New Haiti Interim Government

Sunday March 20, Haiti’s Parliament rejected the interim president’s pick for Prime Minister, Fritz Jean. While this was expected based on the pro-Martelly parliamentarians’ immediate rejection of Jean, it means that Haiti’s elections can’t possibly be held in time for the agreed-upon April 24 deadline.
