There has been much confusion and misinformation surrounding the October 2014 municipal and legislative elections in Haiti. Given Haiti’s fragile and ongoing recovery from the massive 2010 earthquake and the necessity of international aid for this effort, this type of misinformation is particularly damaging. It is important to focus on the facts and ensure a level approach to this important electoral process. The stakes are high for this election cycle -- two-thirds of the Senate seats are up for vote, the entire House and 140 municipalities will vote for new mayors.
- Appoint a new 23-member Cabinet comprised of representatives from a wide array of Haiti’s political parties. Publication in the official journal “Le Moniteur” proposed by the opposition in the senate to control the Cour Superieure des Comptes, the country highest administrative Court

- Publication in the official journal of all the non-binding resolutions the Senate has passed
- Replace three members of the CEP with representatives of the political cartel, giving them full control of the electoral body. The President of the newly formed CTCEP was personally chosen by the President of the Senate as well as all the key positions of the electoral body.
