Haitian Leaders Urged to End Political Impasse




PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Wednesday February 26, 2020 – Leaders in Haiti must step up and end the
political impasse between President Jovenel Moïse and a surging opposition
movement that has paralyzed the island nation since July 2018, the top United
Nations (UN) official there says.

UN Special Representative Helen La
Lime made the call as she updated ambassadors on latest developments in the
prolonged divide which has left Haiti without a functioning government,
deflated the economy, and fuelled insecurity.

“Haiti is about to enter in its
second year with a caretaker government, its economy is forecast to sink deeper
into recession, and 4.6 million of its citizens are now estimated to require
humanitarian assistance,” she said, speaking via videoconference from Haiti’s

“To avoid a greater deterioration,
Haitian leaders need to rise to the occasion and commit to a way out of this
impasse that will best serve the interests of their people.”

La Lime was introducing the first
report on the UN Integrated Office in Haiti, which she heads.

Known by the French acronym BINUH, it
was stablished last October, following the end of 15 years of UN peacekeeping
operations. Its mandate includes strengthening political stability and good

During the past months, La Lime and
international partners the Organization of American States and the Holy See
have been supporting negotiations to forge consensus on a political

However, talks failed to yield
progress on the formation of a new government and the designation of a
“consensual” Prime Minister by the President.

“The lack of agreement on this
matter, as well as on the remaining length of President Moïse’s term, threatens
to needlessly prolong a situation that has already lasted too long,” she told
the UN Security Council.

In the interim, said Executive
Director of the non-profit Fondasyon Je Klere, Marie Yolène Gilles, who also
spoke from the capital city, Haitians are being subjected to widespread human
rights violations as armed gangs now control around a third of the country,
generating “a rising tide of cruelty”.

“We have witnessed odious killings,
decapitations, rapes, robberies, embezzlement and the diversion of supplies,
abductions and kidnappings,” she reported, later adding “we have death
squadrons, and that’s a form of state terrorism.”

La Lime told ambassadors the ongoing
impasse and economic troubles risk further affecting the integrity of the
national police and other key institutions.

The senior UN official said that while
the road to improved governance will be difficult, the deployment of the new UN
office should see deeper and more targeted collaboration with the country.

Success will be measured by progress
in six areas.  Besides facilitating
political consensus, strengthening the police and justice sectors, and
addressing unemployment and other grievances, benchmarks also focus on
addressing gang violence and promoting human rights.

“Only through a combination of strong
national will and steadfast international support can Haiti surmount the
multifaceted crisis with which it is contending,” said La Lime.

“I remain confident that the United Nations, in its new configuration, is uniquely placed to help State institutions address the factors that catalyze cyclical periods of instability in the country and ensure that Haiti is once again on the path to stability and sustainable development.”
