On Thursday, December 17, President Martelly ordered to create a special commission to assess the condition of the country's upcoming electoral process scheduled on December 27, 2015. A 'Commission of Electoral Evaluation' has been created under section 136 of the Constitution and the Decree of 17 May 2005.
