The United Nations Security Council finished a three day visit to Haiti this weekend. The Security Council called for the Haitian government to hold legitimate elections as soon as possible and for the executive branch to involve allies and opposition leaders alike in the governing process until the legislative branch is reestablished. The US ambassador asked members from both sides of the aisle to make compromises in the interest of the country as a whole. During the trip, Haiti’s Justice Minister Pierre-Richard Casimir also asked the UN representatives to postpone any reductions in the number of UN peacekeepers placed in Haiti until after elections are held. The Security Council and UN as a whole must now consider how they can best assist Haiti during this crisis.
