The decree for the constitutional referendum and the electoral calendar will be published soon, Guy Roméus, the treasurer of the Provisional Electoral Council, said during his visit to the Northern Department. 

“We discussed with a country that’s ready for the elections,” Roméus said. 

The referendum is currently scheduled for March 2021. President Jovenel Moïse said in October that officials are writing a new constitution and the voters will have the chance to approve or reject it as a referendum before next year’s elections. Source
