Brazil Wants UN Force to Stay in Haiti After Elections

The United Nations (UN) Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) may stay in the country after the presidential elections, scheduled for February 7.

The Mission mandate ends in February, however, according to Brazil Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, it will probably be extended. Per the rules, extensions are made in a six-month period basis. The decision will be made by the UN Security Council.

"This is not the right moment to leave. It is the moment to stay, to help Haiti go through this transition," said Amorim, who believes that the presence of the Peace Mission in the post-election period is important to ensure the country’s stability.

When asked about the presence of Brazil in the command of the MINUSTAH military force, Amorim said "with elections and a serious reconstruction effort, who knows, we may leave or be replaced by another country."

    So far, under Brazilian commander…
    ….the UN peace corps, has been a total failure there.

    Kidnappings, killings, street violences are far higher than before.
    Elections have already been delayed 2 times
    for the reasons just mentionned.

    Anyone could read the International news on the country.

    Finally just an open question :
    – why this time the UN is asking 2 names not 1 for the new brazilian general, after the first one commited suicide ???

    This put bad thinkings in my mind !

    Time will tell, hopefully !
