Haitians Still Waiting For Election Results

 PORT-AU-PRINCE - Haitians will have to continue waiting for the final results from the Nov. 28th election.

The final results from the disputed poll was due Monday but officials now say the results will be delayed until an international panel of experts with the Organization of American States can review the vote.

It is yet to be determined how long the recount will take place. The period of complaints with regard to the preliminary results of the first round of the legislative and presidential elections in Haiti came to an end on December 15, four days later than planned on the electoral calendar because of the unrest that followed the publication of the preliminary results.

The Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Albert Ramdin, traveled to Haiti over the weekend to meet with President René Préval, following the missive sent by the Haitian leader to the OAS Secretary General, José Miguel Insulza, requesting support in the search for solutions to the situation generated after the presidential elections of November 28th.

Ambassador Ramdin also held conversations with various political and social stakeholders, among them the three presidential candidates who received the most votes after the first round of the Presidential and Legislative Elections including, Mirlande Manigat, Jude Célestin and Michel Martelly.
