Experts of the Electoral Observation Mission of the European Union stated that the so called massive irregularities and frauds alleged during the last election in Haiti did not materialize. The EU-EOM notes that the report by the the Commission of Verification (CIEVE) did not prove that serious fraud or irregularities took place or had an impact on the results. As a result, there was nothing in the report to trigger a change in the positioning of the main candidates. The Electoral Observation Mission of European Union concluded that the results of the Commission of Verification (CIEVE) has in fact been manipulated.
We have learned that there is a high possibility that one candidate could represent the G8 in the next presidential election in Haiti. I know what the next question is and I will answer it immediately. No, Moise Jean-Charles will not fall for something like this and would run under the banner "Pitit Dessalin". the group is currently working on the plan if thy manage to have a consensus on one candidate, it will likely be Jude Celestin.
Wouldn't this be interesting if we could have a race with Jude Celestin, Moise Jean-Charles, Maryse Narcisse and Jovenel Moise?
We don't know how many members of the G8 will participate in the next presidential election in scheduled for October 9; however, we know for sure that Steven Benoit will not. he has made it official that he will not be a candidate in the next presidential elections in Haiti. According to Steven, he will give its full support to the candidate that the G-8 will designate. As you may remember, Senator Steven Benoit who ran in the previous presidential election under Platform Konviksyon was place on 8th position. He is a member of the G8.
So far we know one of the 8 candidates in the G8 will participate in the next presidential election in Haiti.
Gérald Germain who is the campaign manager of candidate Jude Célestin said that said its candidate will confirm his candidacy for the upcoming presidential election remake scheduled for October 9, 2016. According to the member of the political party LAPEH, this has always been the objective of his candidate which is the organization of credible, democratic and inclusive elections.

A the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) announced the rerun of the last presidential election for October 9, 2016, they have decided to make some major changes to improve the electoral process all together. One of such changes includes putting an end to the practice of poll workers and observers being allowed to vote wherever they want on election day.
