Rene Preval urges for calm after Election results

Following the chaos triggered by the results of the 2010 Haiti Election results, Rene Preval appealed for calm. As thousands of supporters of Michel Martelly took to the streets protesting the election results in which their candidate was not qualified to participate in the runoff election, the president admitted allegation of frauds in the election.


Rene Preval stated that: "If there are problems we can sit down and personally discuss it"." We are asking everyone, please stop burning tires on the roads, stop destroying government buildings, stop attacking people's businesses. We are asking every one to obey the law."" Investors would not want to come if things stay like that."

In his speech, President Preval did not offer clarity as to how the government intends to handle the current situation. Preval pleas for peace did not calm the violence as angry protesters later continued to block roads leading to Preval's private residence in Laboule.
