More than 1,000 Haitian protesters are demanding the resignation of President Rene Preval, claiming that Preval intends to hold on to power beyond his term. There are fears that next year’s election may be put off due to the loss of records during the massive earthquake in January, BBC reports.

Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department has conducted its first ”Tech Meet-Up” focusing on Haiti. The event provided a platform for experts in the relief, communication, education and banking sectors to share best practices for the rehabilitation of Haiti.
