Electoral Pact: Let’s Support the Voters So We Can Support Democracy

BAI just launched the Pak Elektoral (Electoral Pact) to support democracy in Haiti. The Pact comes from BAI’s Civic Engagement Program: During the program, many communities spoke of seeing candidates only during elections and never again after they got elected, unless it was time for another election. They also discussed the necessity for strategies to make candidates keep their promises after elections. Together, they created the Pact. Mario Joseph, Managing Attorney of BAI, invites other organizations to use the Pact too, so they can engage candidates on human rights questions.

The pact is currently available in English and in Haitian Creole.
