Jean Renel Sénatus, zokiki, elected Senator in first round

According to the decision of the Departmental Electoral Office of Litigation (BCED) of West, Jean Renel Sénatus aka "Zokiki", the former Government Commissioner of Port-au-Prince has been elected as a Senate candidate under the banner of "Dessalinienne League" (LIDE).


He had a lead of 44,003 votes (by 43.18%) over his nearest rival in the August 9 election. The names of the four leading candidates from his center were, Jean Renel (LIDE) 101,884 votes, Antonio Cheramy (VERITE) 57,881 votes, Alix Didier (VERITE) 24,057 votes and Jean Myrtho, Muraille (PITIT DESSALINES) 21,605 votes. During his campaign, he had proclaimed himself as a candidate who would fight for family values. Once he gets to the Senate, would fight to introduce bills in support of youth programs, support checks for widows of dead police officers, support the education of children of slain police officers and support their spouses until they remarry. He would put a cap on increasing tax rates, but fine for police abuse would be dear.
