Clinton to meet Preval in Haiti

Clinton to meet Preval in Haiti

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is pressing for a resolution of Haiti's political crisis when she meets President Rene Preval on Sunday.
The State Department says she will also meet election candidates in Haiti. The visit comes amid a political crisis in which Preval's preferred candidate to succeed him and a well-connected contender are deadlocked for a spot in a runoff.
The president's party has called on their candidate, Jude Celestin, to bow out because of pressure from the United States.
The United States says its continued support depends on following an Organization of American States recalculation of results based on an analysis of fraud.
Celestin has yet to say if he will withdraw.
