No credible election possible under President Michel Martelly

As per the report submitted by two U.S. organizations of lawyers, the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL), although the election of October 25, 2015, was less violent than the earlier election on August 9th, it suffered a number of serious problems like low turnout, casting of multiple fraudulent votes, there were many complaints involving fraud and lack of transparency in the vote tabulation process.

The representative observers from these two organizations spent two weeks in Haiti prior to the election day, to observe the process and have ultimately called for an independent investigation of the October 25, 2015 election. As per Mario Joseph, Managing Attorney at the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux, who is also a member of the IADL's governing Bureau, 90% of the Haitian voters are of opinion that the presidential election on October 25th had been tainted by fraud. Mr. Joseph believes that no credible election is possible under President Michel Martelly's government.

On November 25, 82 percent of the population considered the election was fair and that there was no fraud. However, few days ago, after the same question was asked, 90 percent of the population disagreed and believe that the election was rigged with massive fraud. Even more interesting, when the voters were asked who they voted for, only 6 percent said they voted for candidate Jovenel Moise, which would have placed him in fourth position.

The so called G8 or presidential candidates of 8 political parties had a meeting with members of the CEP in order to put in place an independent commission to verify the vote sincerity of the election of October 25.

My question is that: How will that solve the current problem?

Samuel madistin, Jude Celestin, Sauveur Pierre etienne, Steven Benoit, Jean Charles Moise, Eric Jean Baptiste, Jean Henry Ceant and Mario Andresol who were present at the meeting are not in the same position. Each has different interests. Let's take for example a new independent commission is put in place. What really constitute an "Independent Commission in Haiti"? How many candidates would accept the result of the so called independent Commission?
