It's Official, it's Jude Celestin and Mirlande Manigat

This is it folks. The two candidates qualified for the runoff election in Haiti are Jude Celestin and Mirlande Manigat. The Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) just releases this information today.


No more rumors, no more speculations, no more guessing. Jude Celestin will confront Mirlande Manigat in the run-off election which is scheduled to take place on January 16, 2011. We know now for the next five years, Haiti will be governed by either Madame Manigat or Mr. Celestin.

Mirlande Manigat, the presidential candidate for the Rally of Progressive National Democrats (RDNP), was one of the 12 candidates who declared that the 2010 Haiti election should be cancelled because of fraud. However, when she realized that she would likely be among the front runners and would be qualified to participate in the runoff election, she changed her mind.

Jude Celestin was hand-picked by the current president Rene Preval to head be the presidential candidate for the UNITE party. Jude is the executive director of the government's road building company, National Center of Equipment.

None of the candidates running for the election in Haiti seems to have a concrete plan for Haiti, except for Charles Henry Baker, the only candidate having a plan.

How will the campaign for Haiti runoff election sound like?

Who will support whom?
