Acting Prime Minister Claude Joseph met with the Provisional Electoral Council, and promised to continue the president’s projects, although without mentioning the controversial constitutional referendum.

The presidential and legislative elections are scheduled for September 26, while local and municipal elections were scheduled for November 21 this year and January 16, 2022, respectively.

However, several parties and social organizations reject the elections in the current context the country is experiencing and advocate for a consensual transitional government capable of stabilizing the nation and empowering its state institutions.

Moïse was killed with at least 12 shots at his home in Petion Ville, located in the Pelerin hills, and his wife, Martine Ethienne, was seriously injured during the attack.
