    Update Report

    Presidential Elections in Haiti, most recently scheduled for 8 January, have been postponed for the fourth time, on the grounds that a significant number of registered voters had not yet received their electoral identification cards. Haitian officials said the OAS and the UN were responsible for the failure of the distribution of the cards.

    The Council will be monitoring the situation in Haiti with concern as the electoral process unfolds, leading to the elections scheduled for 8 January 2006. A statement giving positive encouragement is a possibility. Any upsurge in political violence or suggestion that the elections might be further delayed is likely to trigger a firm response.
