Economist.com: Apr 6th 2000: “His murder was only the latest, and most prominent, in a wave of violence that seems to worsen with every postponement of Haiti’s long-overdue parliamentary and local elections. Because of political deadlock between Mr Pr?val and the opposition, there has been no legislature since January 1999, and hence very little government; much foreign aid is frozen until a budget can be passed. The most recent election date was March 19th. A few days before it, the electoral commission set a new date of April 9th, but Mr Pr?val simply rejected it.”
