Interim Prime Minister Ariel Henry held a closed-door meeting over the weekend with representatives of several groups said to represent the diaspora. The meeting focused on elections and a new constitution for Haiti, government officials say. 

Although he has not set a date, since taking power last July following the assassination of Jovenel Moïse, Henry has vowed to hold elections for a new government and a referendum for Haitians to vote on adopting new constitution.
