Election oubien Denisyon, Martelly Stonewalling 2013 Elections
Martelly is doing everything he can to avoid holding legislative elections by year's end. The Permanent Electoral Council (PEC) is necessary to prepare and hold elections, but Martelly has effectively aborted its functioning.
He has instituted a major remodeling project, shutting the offices down. He has also bribed PEC leader Ménard to not challenge him.
Prime Minister Lamothe is determined to hold 2013 elections and has the PEC introducing a bill to Parliament to declare elections be held by year's end
