“Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield noted that to date, preparations for the constitutional referendum scheduled for June 27 have not been sufficiently transparent or inclusive, and reiterated that Haiti must hold free, fair, and transparent legislative and presidential elections in 2021,” U.S. Mission to the UN Spokesperson Olivia Dalton said in a statement. “Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield stressed that the Haitian people deserve the right to choose their leaders and have a government that serves them.”

Dalton said President Moïse “affirmed his commitment to holding elections on that timeline.”
