The United Nations Security Council on Thursday decided to extend for another 12 months the mandate of its one-year-old integrated office in Haiti, adopting a technical rollover that made no changes to its original mandate.
Adopting Resolution 2547 by a vote of 13 in favor to zero against with two abstentions, the council extended the mandate of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) until Oct. 15, 2021. It did so in accordance with the terms laid out in Resolution 2476, while also maintaining the reporting requirements therein.
BINUH is a special political mission established by the Security Council in its Resolution 2476 of June 25, 2019 and deployed under Chapter VI of the United Nations Charter.
With a presence only in Port-au-Prince, and focusing exclusively on the provision of advisory services and good offices, BINUH works primarily with state institutions to strengthen political stability and good governance, including the rule of law; advance a peaceful and stable environment, including through supporting an inclusive inter-Haitian national dialogue; and protect and promote human rights.
