New development following the public protest of the election results. The Haitian Joudalist just learned that Haiti Electoral Council agreed to recount the preliminary election results that cause mass demonstration all over Haiti. The Electoral Council also stated the three leading candidates for president, namely Mirlande manigat, Jude Celestin and Michel Martelly as well as the international election observers are invited to re-examine the votes at the official Tabulation Center.
Protests of the election started on the day of the election as polling places were closing.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Mrs. Mirlande Manigat called for an independent evaluation of the votes. She stated that preliminary results allocated to her do not correspond to reality. Michel Martelly urged his supporters to protest the results of the election nonviolently. Martelly stated: "Demonstrating without violence is the right of the people. I will be with you until the bald-head victory"
Following the announcement of the 2010 Haiti election results, American Airlines announced the suspension of their daily flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti for two days. Many other airlines have taken similar actions.
