One Dead in Clashes Following Release of Elections Results in Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE – Ruling party candidate Jovenel Moise and former national construction director Jude Celestin will face each other in a Dec. 27 presidential runoff, Haiti’s Provisional Elections Council, or CEP, said Thursday, sparking disturbances that left at least one person dead.

Moise got 32.81 percent of the vote in the first round on Oct. 25, followed by Celestin with 25.27 percent, CEP chair Pierre-Louis Opont told a press conference.

Sen. Moise Jean-Charles finished third, with 14.27 percent of the vote, while Maryse Narcisse, representing former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s Lavalas party, took the fourth spot with just over 7 percent, according to the CEP.

Within minutes of the announcement, supporters of some of the 52 other presidential hopefuls burned tires on roads leading into the capital suburb of Delmas, radio stations reported.

Police sources told EFE shots were fired and that an activist with Jean-Charles’ organization died in some kind of confrontation.

EFE witnessed militants from various parties left out of the runoff setting tires ablaze in the Martissant and Carrefour sections of Port-au-Prince.

Security forces deployed outside CEP headquarters in the capital early Thursday in anticipation of the release of preliminary results.
