TO HEAR coup leader Brig. Gen. Raoul Cedras tell it, you'd think that he and Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide had an argument, and the president resigned.Signed a paper, he did.Then the general -- to save his president's life -- got him safely off to exile in Venezuela. Only then did the general reluctantly, oh so reluctantly take power himself.Other than its doubtful veracity, there's one other small problem with this scenario: Like him and his policies or not, Aristide is Haiti's democratically elected president.

CARACAS, Venezuela - After demanding an audit of voting results upon failing to oust President Hugo Chavez in a recall referendum, representatives of Venezuela's opposition movement said yesterday that they would refuse to participate in or recognize the review, asserting that the audit would fail to detect the deception that they insist took place. The opposition has not offered solid evidence of wrongdoing to the Organization of American States or to the Carter Center - monitors of the 18-hour recall election Sunday, in which Venezuelans voted by a large margin to keep Chavez as their leader.

WASHINGTON - Senior members of the Bush administration met several times in recent months with leaders of a coalition that ousted Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for two days last weekend and agreed with them that he should be removed from office, administration officials said yesterday. But administration officials gave conflicting accounts of what the United States had told these opponents of Chavez about acceptable ways of ousting him. One senior official involved in the discussions insisted that the Venezuelans use constitutional means, such as a referendum, to effect an overthrow.

IF ONLY HAITI had a history of constitutional democracy like that of the United States. Were that the case, Wednesday's inauguration of Jean-Bertrand Aristide would have been a cause for celebration - in the small island nation and abroad. Instead, it was marked by a new round of uncertainties, prompted by the abrupt end of talks between Mr. Aristide's party and the 15-party opposition alliance that claimed earlier legislative elections were fraudulent and has named its own provisional president.

ALMOST NO ONE in or out of Peru thinks that its runoff election for president last Sunday was on the level. Challenger Alejandro Toledo dropped out and urged Peruvians to boycott or deface their ballot paper. Half the electorate obliged. If Mr. Toledo might be charged with sour grapes, the same cannot be said for the Organization of American States, whose official observer also pulled out. So it is surprising that the United States failed to get an OAS special meeting to allow collective action by the American republics.
