Haiti forms electoral panel for overdue polls
Haiti has installed a Provisional Electoral Council to organise long-delayed elections – after weeks of protests and political uncertainty.
The nine-member panel represents different sectors of society.
It was sworn in shortly before a UN Security Council delegation arrived on a three-day mission.
General and municipal polls are three years overdue, and President Michel Martelly began ruling by decree last week when parliament was dissolved.
The dissolution followed a failure to elect new MPs in the impoverished Caribbean nation.
