T&T: Democracy is only about elections

ON the eve of the 15th CARICOM Inter-Sessional Heads of Government summit in St Kitts/Nevis, the Emancipation Support Committee (ESC) is calling on regional leaders not to recognise Haitian interim Prime Minister Gerard Latortue’s government and demand the restoration of Jean-Bertrand Aristide as Haiti’s “duly elected, legitimate political leader.” Addressing a news conference at the ESC’s Maraval headquarters, ESC chairman Khafra Kambon declared: “Any Caribbean government which officially recognises this regime will, in effect, be repudiating Caricom’s principled call for an international investigation into the ouster of President Aristide.”
