In a statement Tuesday the OAS General Secretariat said it “has an essential interest in the protection of democratic institutions and the political rights of its citizens. It is fundamental that state institutions work together to resolve the problems afflicting Haiti. We call for democratic structural changes in Haiti through the discussion of a new Constitution and an effective participation in general elections this year.”
