Opposition wants Cancellation of Parliamentary Elections in First Round

Two political parties, Rasin kan PEP and Struggling People's Organization, have called upon the Provisional Electoral Council to investigate disruptions and violence at the polls during Parliamentary elections.

Both parties assert PHTK, Shield, Ayiti, and other opposition parties perpetrated acts of violence, vandalism, and looting.

International observers like the EU and OAS say irregularities at the polls don't rise to the level that a need for canceling the first round of elections is necessary.
