Lucia Mouat,, The Christian Science Monitor

"These are three important and very encouraging steps.... But some difficult obstacles still lie ahead," cautions Robert Pastor, director of Latin American programs at Emory University's Carter Center in Atlanta and a leader in organizing monitoring efforts in Haiti's election. …
