7814: OAS Mission in Haiti (fwd)

From: Max Blanchet <maxblanchet@worldnet.att.net>

OAS mission arrives in Haiti Wednesday

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, CANA - The Organisation of American States (OAS)
mission which was due in strife-torn Haiti since last week, is now scheduled
to arrive on Wednesday.

That team, which leaders at the recent Quebec Summit of the Americas
agreed to send in, has been mandated to assess Haiti's democratic and
electoral process, the same process that brought President Jean Bertrand
Aristide to power and which opposition groupings are challenging.

The arrival of the mission coincides with what appears to be last-ditch
scheduled for the same day between Aristide and opposition leaders to try
at preventing any further political and social disintegration in the
French-speaking Caribbean nation.
