After more than two months without an elected leader, Haitians will go to the polls in April to choose a new President.

A disputed run-off election in January was postponed due to violence and an interim President was elected last month in line with an agreement aimed at avoiding a leadership vacuum.

Sandra Honore, head of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), on Thursday briefed the Security Council about the situation.

Cristina Silveiro asked Ms Honore what her expectations were for the upcoming vote.
