The UK recognises the challenges faced by Haiti, particularly in the face of COVID-19. The UK continues to use its platform at United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to call for credible and transparent elections as soon as possible, to ensure Haiti is governed by strong democratic institutions. The UK also supports the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the UN Special Political Mission, BINUH, in their ongoing diplomatic engagement with the Haitian authorities on elections. We also support BINUH's advisory role in support of the Haitian National Police's efforts to ensure a safe and secure environment for the conduct of elections. The UK supported UNSC's decision for a one year extension for BINUH.
