January 24, New Date for the Presidential & Legislative Run-Offs In Haiti

The Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) has given a new election date for the presidential and legislative runoffs. It is scheduled to be held on January 24, 2016. Earlier on January 1, 2016, on the Haitian Independence Day, President Martelly had announced that as per CEP's information to him the election has been scheduled on January 17th, 2016 so that there would be ample time for the new President of the nation to swear in on February 7, 2016. However, after that the CEP has informed him that preparing for January 17 would be very difficult, if not impossible to them. On Wednesday, January 6th, President Martelly, while walking to his motorcade in the Petion-Ville suburb of Port-au-Prince, has informed that he has received a letter from the election authority confirming the new date on January 24, 2016.
