Haiti’s President Elect Thanks Brazil and Plans do Visit Country

Brazilian Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, called Haiti’s elected President, René Préval, this Thursday, February 16, to congratulate him for his victory, and for his efforts on trying to establish communication with the various political forces of that country. The information was released by the Press Service of Brazil’s Ministry of Foreign Relations.

During the call, Préval expressed gratitude for the Brazilian contribution for establishing peace and consolidating democracy in his country, and mentioned his desire to visit Brazil before his inauguration, scheduled for March 29th.

The Brazilian Chancellor evaluated that the decision by Haitian authorities to declare the victory of René Préval was an essential step for the institutional normalization of that country.

Préval was proclaimed the winner after the Provisory Electoral Council (CEP) decided, based on Haitian legislation, to proportionally distribute blank votes among the candidates.
