New Haitian cardinal mediates in nation’s political crisis

Catholic World News - March 07, 2014

Cardinal Chibly Langlois, who became Haiti’s first cardinal in February, has been invited to serve as a mediator in a national political crisis, the Fides news agency reported.

President Michel Martelly has delayed legislative elections for two years, and progress towards an agreement that would permit elections has stalled.

“The Church accompanies political actors to be able to build dialogue between all parties and solve the problems of our society,” said Cardinal Langlois. “We must share the responsibility of resolving the political situation and the crisis that our country is experiencing, and this can only be achieved through dialogue.”
