As per news dated November 30, 2015, the eight losing presidential candidates (G8) out of total 54 candidates representing 49.81% of total votes, following the failure of a meeting with the CEP demanding to form an independent commission of inquiry to inquire and assess the alleged frauds affecting the integrity of the October 25th election, are now demanding either a change in Haiti's electoral council and national police department or a transitional government to oversee a new general election. These candidates include seven of top ten vote getters and each of them claim they won the presidency in the first round of election held on October 25th, 2015. As per their demand, the transitional government would be empowered to adopt a new constitution with various reforms needed to organize a credible election within next two years.
If you want to believe the words of candidate Sauveur Pierre Etienne as accomplished facts, than you would believe that there will not be a run off presidential election in Haiti. According to Sauveur Pierre Etienne's own sources, the Spanish Company SOLAR will declare the PHTK candidate the winner of the election by winning at 53 percent of the votes.
Mr. Etienne also stated that representatives of seven political parties are currently in discussion to counter this act and that they will be issuing a press release later today to make public their stand. He had already contacted Jude Celestin, Samuel Madistin, Eric jean Baptiste, Jean Henry Ceant, Steven Benoit and Moise Jean Charles.
If you have been waiting for the election results to be published today, you will have to wait a little bit longer. The CEP just announced that the election results have been postponed for November 5. This decision came following the conclusion of a special commission put in place to investigate complaints of frauds following the election of October 25.
The special commission received a total of 162 complaints of irregularity and frauds during the last election; 43 of these complaints have been transferred to the Tabulation Center to be followed up. The CEP also announced that the conclusion of these investigations will be made public the moment they the investigation ends.
Many people did not take formed Senator Dieuseul Simon Desras seriously when he was making some damaging accusation on the Martelly government about the the election of October 25. He mentioned that some members of the group rented a home belonging to Dr Guerin; "that if you go there you would see about 17 cars in front of that house with tinted windows, watching over the house day and night".
According to Senator Deras, this is the place where the government was involved in manufacturing ballots for the October 25 election.
There is a great possibilities that the level of voter fraud in the last election in Haiti is unprecedented, something never done before in the history. Now the CEP is investigating to know if more than half of the total votes obtained in the lat election legitimate.
According to an article just released by the Nouvelliste, more than half of the number of votes are from mandates. Mr. Opont stated that the CEP produced a total of 915,068 mandates and distributed exactly 915,675 mandates to the various political parties which represents about 16 percent of the electorate. Considering that participation rate by the population is estimated at 30 percent, consequently the number of mandates reaching the ballot boxes throughout the country is more than actual voters.
According to several news sources in the media, Parti Haitien Tet Kale (PHTK) was involved ballot stuffing on Election day. They purchased ten of thousand of trafficked cards from accredited organizations and Mandates. It was also reported that paid agents or fanatics were voting multiple times on election day. The decision of the CEP to issue close to 14,000 accreditation cards to each political party was criticized. Many of these organizations were not politically neutral.
It is also a fact in Haiti history that violence and manipulation of the electoral process is often orchestrated by the government itself. During the election, the government is often the group that is involved in violence as it has the monopoly of violence. The government will often use whatever necessary to win.
The key to be a good business person is the ability to predict what the demand will likely be depending on the situation or occasion. I am 100 percent certain that there is going to be a great demand for candidates who would rather be known as Victimized Candidates once the election results are published by the CEP.
As they may already start, many of those who did not win will play the card of victims so that they can capitalize on the sympathy of the population as well as keeping a face to justify their lost. This is usually the most difficult time for the CEP members in Haiti. Candidates who were not chosen will start protesting
Election officials in Haiti are counting ballots from Sunday's vote at th Tabulation Center located at SONAPI.
This is a lengthy process that will eventually determine the preliminary results. A total of 400 people at the Tabulation Center in order to evaluate the Proce Verbal" from all polling stations in Haiti. They started receiving "Proce Verbal" on Monday and as of Tuesday they had about thirty percent of the total, coming specifically from Departments Ouest, North Ouest, SouthEast, and North.
According to Engeneer Matador, responsible for operation of the Tabulation Center, they are working as expected and in all transparency to make sure that the results are published as indicated by the electoral calendar.
It appears that former former Senator and Presidential Candidate Steven Benoit made a mistake. He thought that the political party he joined had conviction, but doesn't. Senator Benoit reported that his Political Party, Konviksyon, received 13,725 mandates on his behalf for election observation but only gave 6,766 to the Senator.
He broke them down as follows:
In Nord Department, 1362 were assigned to him, he received only: 651. In Artibonite Departmebt out of 1779, he received only: 627 and in Ouest Depatment, out of 4436, he only received 1492
Senator Benoit already wrote a letter to informed the CEP of the problem. He did not hesitate to implicate directly Hans Tippenhauer, Bertony Belgarde and Nixon Batalier who are the coordinating members of the party Konviksyon who have possession of the money that he was supposed to have. he further stated that not a dime went on his pocket.
What if Moise Jean Charles and Maryse Narciss go to run-off? - Many experts made it clear that the contest for the presidency of Haiti is between four candidates, Jude Celestin, Moise Jean Charles, Jovenel Moise and Maryse Narcisse. Have you asked the question: What if the two candidates who are qualified for the run off election scheduled for December 27, 2015 are Moise Jean Charles and Maryse Narcisse?
This is definitely something to think about as it is a possibility. Until the last week before the election, only three candidates were really in the race to win the presidency, Jude Celestin, Moise Jean Charles and Jovenel Moise. However Jean Bertrand Aristide has one more time demonstrated to many that he is a force not to be denied. His public support to Maryse Narcisse on the last week before the election has made a major effect. She is now counted as one of the possible winners to be qualified for the run off.
