Conditions for the Participation of Lavalas in the Elections

[quote]2 February - Members of ousted President Aristide's Lavalas Family party have indicated that they will participate in elections only if the interim government ends what they call the arbitrary arrest of Aristide supporters. To date, 91 political parties have already registered with the government and United Nations elections officer Gerardo Le Chavellier said close to 100 candidates will contest the presidential elections. Supporters of the ousted leader continue to demand his return to office, and political violence in Aristide strongholds has resulted in the deaths of over 250 people over the past four months.
