Haiti – Legislative election

The result of the legislative election in Haiti has finally been announced. The first round was held on 28 November. The second round was held on 20 March.

The Electoral Commission has posted the results in the individual constituencies. Some kind person has aggregated them on Wikipedia. Here is the screenshot.

Bear in mind that the newly elected president, Michel Martely, represents the Repons Peyisan group. So, he has little formal support in the legislature, though no doubt some of the other groups will work with him.

President Martely has criticised the results, claiming that the Electoral Commission had rigged the process to allow INITE, former President Préval’s party, to win the most seats, even though they were not ahead at the first ballot. Kiskeya is reporting that there has been rioting in response the formal announcement of the results.
