The Provisional Electoral Council announced in a statement Monday that it would postpone the referendum because of the severe COVID-19 wave hitting Haiti. 

The CEP did not provide a new date. The organizing body had already rescheduled the referendum from April 25 to June 27.

A new electoral calendar will be published after members if the CEP receive guidance from the Ministry of Public Health and of the Population (MSPP).
