Caricom leaders will not unanimously accept Haiti back into the organization until after elections are held there in December this year.
Thats the word from Jamaicas Foreign Minister K.D. Knight.
Caricom has refused to re-admit Haiti into the organization since the ouster of elected President, Jean Bertrand Aristide and the installation by the U.S., of interim leaders, Gerard Latortue and Alexandre Boniface.
Meanwhile, a lecturer at an American military academy says the international community should take over the running of Haiti along the lines of a protectorate.
Dr Gabriel Marcella, a lecturer in strategic leadership at the Army War College in Pennsylvania admits the notion of a protectorate in the 21st century is unpopular but said, it might be the only long-term solution for Haitis problems.
