In an interview with Venezuelan TV channel Telesur today, Prime Minister of Haiti Evans Paul said  "It is clear that there will be no elections before the departure of President Michel Martelly February 7 " confirming what many of Haiti's observers predicted several months ago.

The Prime Minister said he is in talks with the opposition to see who will take the reins of the country February 7, 2016, the Constitutional date for President Martelly to leave office.

The opposition has already released a list of recommendations for what will happen after the departure of President Michel Martelly. They recommend that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Haiti assume the role of the presidency so that the election can be held in no more than 60 days.

The international community had warned the outgoing President Martelly however. No transitional government would be recognized because it believes the Haitian Constitution does not recommend such a scenario.
