President Martelly is acting to ensure his pick for the Haitian presidency, Jovenel Moise, wins office. This would ensure continuation of Martelly government policies. Martelly cannot run for a second term, but he can manipulate the electoral process to keep the people's will from being heard.
The U.S. is being harshly criticized for remaining largely passive in the face of Martelly's hastily put-together death squad, Departmental Brigade of Operations and Interventions (BOID). When citizens from Archaie, a fishing village, protested peacefully against Martelly's plans to displace them and construct tourist resorts, they were responded to with a deafening silence from the government. In desperation they resorted to a tactic to draw government attention: blocking the national highway. That's when the government deployed BOID, black-clad former prisoners, who invaded Arcahaie, killing, demolishing homes, and burgling local businesses.
The United Nations issued a note to deny ongoing allegations in the Haitian press that UNOPS has been involved in systematic manipulation of the last election. UNOPS which stands for United Nations Office for Project Services has been blamed for manipulation attempts in the past elections in Haiti in favor of PHTK political party.
For the election of August 9 and October 25, 2015, UNOPS was the entity with the responsibility to provide logistical support, including the delivery and recovery of sensitive materials from various voting centers in the country. UNOPS was also assisted by representatives of the CEP and also agents of the National Police of Haiti (PNH).
The Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) made clear that after investigation and analysis that there were massive fraud in the last election. A list of various frauds were identified including actual votes superior to the voters of BV, number of National Identification Card (CIN) being different from that of the votes. In addition, the CEP found missing data with false CIN; in several BV, the minutes did nor correspond with the tally sheet. There were tricks in the way the votes were being counted: some of the results were entered in letter which did not correspond with the digits. Some PV were found with no LEP and much more.
According to the information obtained by HaitiObservet.Com, Antoine Rodon Bien-Aimé, Deputy of Cerca-Carvajal under the political party PHTK mades some shocking revelation of massive fraud. What makes the story so interesting is that those accusations were made against his own political party PHTK.
The revelations are as follows: A Canadian national, Sylvain Cotte, was recommended by the current head of the MINUStah in Haiti, Sandra Honore, to be hired for l'Unops, an organization responsible to provide logistic for the election in Haiti.
The Deputy of Cerca-Carvajal, Antoine Rodon Bien-Aimé, accused Sylvain Cotte for his involvement in introducing false "Proce Verbal" during the transportation to the Tabulation Center in favor of candidate Jovenel Moise. According to Mr. Bien-Aime, the "Proce Verbal" switched were produced in addition, in the home of a relative of president Michel Martelly.
Out of all those who denounced the election results of November 5, only two candidates have taken actions. Fanmi Lavalas candidate, Dr. Maryse Narcisse and Vilaire Cluny Duroseau filed claims to contest the results before the deadline.
The BCED will hear both cased today (11/10/15). The protest period for the presidential election results had a 72 hour window which stated last Thursday and ended yesterday at 5 PM. Vilaire Cluny Duroseau doesn't agree with the number of votes attributed to him based on the number of "Proce Verbal" he has on hand. Maryse Narcisse complained about the election frauds in favor of Jovenel Moise.
The following eight candidates (G8) representing 49.81% of total votes, who ran for the last Presidential election on October 25, 2015, have signed a joint note requesting the Provisional Election Commission (CEP) to form an independent commission to inquire about the alleged frauds affecting the integrity of the October 25, 2015 election.
The rankings in the contest and their shares of votes are given here along with the candidates' names and the banners they represent. Jude Célestin, LAPEH (2nd place total 394,390 or 25.27% votes), Moise Jean-Charles, Platfòm Pitit Dessalin (3rd place, total 222,646 or 14.27% votes), Éric Jean-Baptiste, M.A.S (5th place, total 56,671 or 3.63% votes), Jean-Henry Céant, Renmen Ayiti (6th place, total 39,005 or 2.50% votes), Sauveur Pierre Étienne, OPL (7th place, total 30,227 or 1.94% votes), Steven I.

We just received information that the Preliminary results of the elections have been released. The elections on October 25, 2015 was supposed to determine the composition of the Haitian. Here is what the Haitian Senate will look look like if there are no objections :

Maxo Gaspard who was responsible for logistic at Pitit Desalin was killed following the publication of the election results by the CEP. According to eyewitnesses, after the elimination of Moise Jean Charles, Maxo Gaspard came out saying "Moise Jean Charles or death". Consequently, he was shot to death by an armed police officer present. Several witnesses pointed the finger at Boyd, a new Unit of the Haitian Police , whom they accused for killing Mr. Gaspard.
according to people who know Maxo Gaspard, he was very close to Moise Jean Charles. The candidate reacted to the death of his friend and also rejected the election results, stating that he will stand to fight the electoral coup d'etat that Martelly and some in the international community are trying to do.
We just learned that the election results will be given today at 4:00PM. "Pare pa Pare lanterman pour 4 heures"
We also learned that last night was very noisy with gun shots heard all over the Haitian Capital. We hope that the CEP will respect the time and not to wait until midnight to release the election results.
The heat is on for the members of the CEP. Today is definitely a historic day for these members. They will be classified either as heroic individuals or be a disgrace for the Haitian society. The following are the names you need to remember. They are the current CEP members:
Friday, Pierre-Louis Opont, the President of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), has again confirmed the date of Tuesday, November 3, 2015 for the publication of preliminary results of the elections of 25 October. What should expect? Do you think the results will be satisfactory to everyone?
Haitians anxiously waiting for the preliminary results of the first round of presidential elections to be published today by members of the provisional Electoral Council (CEP). Fifty four candidates were in the race. However, the candidates most people have their eyes on are: Jude Celestin, Jean Charles Moise and Jovenel Moise.
