Where are the results?

It is nearly 10 am on 9 February in Haiti. That is 42 hours since the polling stations officially closed. The CEP said it would release partial results - I heard the BBC reporter say she had been told that would happen once 20% of returns had been collated.

I am getting worried about what is going on. If the reactionaries have been forced to admit that they are not going to get the Presidency, then I fear they are fixing to rig the Parliamentary results in their favour. Is anyone paying any attention to the Senate and Deputy elections????????????????

The number of Lespwa legislative candidates

Lespwa put up 19 candidates for the 30 Senate seats, and 58 candidates for the 99 Deputy seats.

Looks to me like they all might go to a second round, but if anyone can explain the Senate process, please do so.

I have just read the electoral law. It says that a Senate candidate must poll an absolute majority in order to be elected in the first round. BUT the voter is instructed to chose three candidates on each ballot paper - for the three candidates per department.

Therefore, presuming that most voters do pick three candidates on each ballot paper, it is impossible for one candidate to score more than 50%. For example, even if in one department, Lespwa has three Senate candidates (as in the South-East), and every single voter votes for them, the maximum that any one candidate can get is 33.3% of the votes cast. All three candidates would have to enter the second round run-off to d
etermine which one serves six years, which one four and which one two.

Tell me if this is right or wrong. I can't see another way of it working.

Or is the absolute majoirty calculated on the number of valid ballot papers? For example, if there were 100 voters in the South-East who voted, and 51 of them voted for all three Lespwa candidates, and the 49 others voted for all sorts of other candidates, would that mean all three Lespwa candidates are elected in the first round? No, that's not possible, because we would not know then which one serves six, which one four and which one two years.

Please, somebody must know this time!!!!!

9 fevrier - Signal FM

Un centre de vote de 12 bureaux a été incendié dans la nuit de mardi à mercredi à Bourdon, localité de la commune de Chambellan.

Le représentant d'un parti politique impliqué dans le processus électoral serait responsable de cet incendie,

A Verrettes, 12 personnes dont deux candidats à la députation ont été arrêtées mardi pour avoir créées une situation de désordre le jour du vote.

Les deux candidats concernés sont respectivement de L'Artibonite en Action et de Fusion des Sociaux-démocrates.

A dialogue on Politique de doublure, its many facets.....

Strange but true. Leslie Manigat is confirming that Preval won't need a second round. Is he the next PM? That's what it sounds like. Let's wait and see.

In response to Padel's question, I suspect that no party will really have a majority in Parliament. They will all have a consensus prime minister. That's just my suspicion.

Le map gade resilta eleksyion prezidansyel sa, mwen pa kwe ap genyen yon deziem tou!

Li pa nesese!! Paske moun ki an deziem pozisyon an pap gen ase sipo de res kandida yo pou'l ale nan yon deziem tou.
Plis ke la moatye lot res kandida yo ap bay sipo yo petet a pati LESPWA.
Konklisyon ke mwen kap tire nan statistic eleksyion sa se ke: Anpil lot mesye sa yo ki te gen pretansyon vinn prezidan, eleksyion sa se yon kout dlo fret byen glase ke pep la voye nan figi yo.
Sa reveye konsyans yo e fe yo we realite an fas, e fok yo vinn pa remake ke yo pa gen repondonn pou vinn prezidan.
Fok mesye sa yo konmanse mete expektasyon yo yon ti gout pli ba e kómanse pa chache job ki a la ote yo.

Mesaj ke pep la voye bayo se ke : La marinn pa metye yo!!

Ooooh refi, refi!!
Min w pa jamb konnin, mesye sa yo komanse ap chante: pa genanyen pou dekouraje nou nan 5 ane anko na retounin.

pa genanyen pou dekouraje nou nan 5 an
e anko na retounin oooh. oooh refi, refi!!

To you all

There is an article on AHP about the election's result that I found very funny. One of the candidates is crying for second place. Michel di pèp la voye you gode dlo frèt nan figi neg yo, men sa kap kriye pou dezyèm plas la genlè li poko konprann mesaj pèp la ou byen se je chèch lap fè. Nèg sa yo merite pou yo chante san ront san santiman pou yo.

According to the last information I just got, it seems that the CEP is trying to make the election go to a second round. It seems a lot of votes are being marked as invalid. It seems that it is required for Preval to get more than 50 percent of the total votes, not 50 percent of the counted votes. Let's say, 1000 people vote, but only 900 of those votes are counted, Preval still needs to get 501 votes in order that there is not a second round. That does not seem right to me. If I had to guess, I would guess that the votes marked as invalid are Preval's votes. It seems some people are playing all their cards to force a second round.
