On the Violation of Voting Rights in Haiti: Elections that Do Not Reflect the Will of the People (Bureau des Avocats Internationaux, Canada Haiti Action Network, TransAfrica Forum, Louisiana Justice Institute)

The consistent failure of the Haitian government to respect the laws on constitutional election procedures has been one of the BAI’s major concerns in the establishment of the rule of law in Haiti. Among these concerns are the exclusion of political parties in the legislative elections of 2009 and the presidential and legislative elections of 2010 and 2011, as well as violations of the right to vote of persons displaced since the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

As a result of serious violations of the people’s human rights, the BAI, TransAfrica Forum and the Louisiana Justice Institute submit this report concerning political rights to the UN Human Rights Council for its Universal Periodic Review of Haiti.
