The Community, in a statement on Tuesday, condemned the acts of violence that have marred the electoral process and contributed to the postponement of the second round of the presidential elections and the remaining members of the legislature.

Haiti’s Electoral Council postponed the elections, scheduled for Sunday 24 January, citing security concerns.

The Community said it looks forward to the continuation of the electoral process and to an improved management and conduct of the polling process.
