CARICOM talks fail to produce breakthrough

In a bid to resolve Haiti's ongoing political crisis, a meeting facilitated by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) was held in Jamaica from 11 to 13 June. Although Haitian politicians and civil society leaders attended, the High Transitional Council (HTC) did not.  Significant proposals were discussed, including Prime Minister Henry’s plans to expand the HTC and establish a government of national unity. The opposition parties expressed concerns about the Prime Minister's extensive powers and proposed the formation of a presidential college in conjunction with the Prime Minister's role.

Subsequently, a CARICOM delegation met with Haitian stakeholders in Port-au-Prince from 12 to 15 July, continuing the facilitation of inter-Haitian dialogue. Although no definitive agreement was reached, progress was reported on 18 July, with a reduced number of parties involved and a future negotiation agenda. This development aims to facilitate credible elections and establish a constitution-based government.
