Wyclef Jean removed from Election contest by CEP

As the new presidential election drew near, it can be recalled that the government and the CEP slammed singer Wyclef Jean's bid to run in the election. They said it was against the constitution to allow the rapper, who has been living in the United States for many years, to file a candidacy.

This angered Jean, who even wrote a song against the CEP. In the song, he said that it was not him that the CEP rejected but it was the people, the youth, the peasants, and the entire country. Jean vowed not to give up and to continue fighting "bad" officials. This incident was such a controversy back then because of Jean's popularity and the election's importance.

Provisional Electoral Commission(CEP) does miracle with legislative vote counts

Who said miracles could not happen in Haiti? If you think miracle is not possible in Haiti, you need to take a look at the last Legislative election in Haiti.

Do you want to know how the Provisional Electoral Commission(CEP) was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat during the last legislative vote counts?

Imagine that all votes counted and a preliminary result said that a candidate of the UNITE party came in third place with a total of 90,000 votes. Now imagine just a few days later, a recount of the same votes brought the same candidate from third place all the way to first place, with 145,000 votes. This is a gain of 55,000 votes.
