Saint Lucia’s External Affairs Minister Petrus Compton made the statement ahead of Haiti’s General Elections, scheduled for February 7. The statement comes days after Haitian Prime Minister Gerard Latortue called for his country’s reinstatement into the regional grouping.

'…we are prepared to work with a Haitian government that is elected constitutionally and properly in free and fair elections,' Compton said."
