On October 6, 2015, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stopped at the National Palace in Port-au-Prince to discuss with the Haitian President about the preparations of the country's upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections on October 25th. During his brief stopover, Kerry has said that it is a fact that democracy requires a great deal more than elections, but elections are the essential starting points for democracy. Haiti needs governing institutions that are legitimate and representative and that can be achieved only through a fair and free election. A fair election is an election without any intimidation and violence. Kerry has also stressed that a fair election can establish a representative administration and moreover, it would be an essential starting point for democracy and the key to attract foreign investment.
