#3211: election 'fever': Klarreich comments



In response to your question about the June 12 date:

If I understand the situation correctly (and there's always a question mark 
when Haiti is concerned), any parliament that is not in place by June 12 
(second Monday in June) can still meet, but only when convoked by the 
President in what is termed an  "extraordinary" session. When this condition 
applies, only the President, not parliamentarians, can introduce legislation.
