Here is a picture of CEP President, Pierre-Louis Opont.

On November 30th, 2015, Pierre Louis Opont, the President of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), had announced that the formation of an independent Commission of Inquiry, as per the petition of the G8 and other political activists, to verify all the Minutes and the preliminary presidential election results would be unconstitutional because the electoral decree does not grant the CEP any authority to form such a commission. We may recall that on November 23, 2015, first eight losing presidential candidates (G8) representing 49.81% of total votes, requested the CEP to form an independent commission to inquire about the alleged frauds affecting the integrity of the October 25, 2015 election. Furthermore, Louis Opont has said, the results were published with confirmation from the Tabulation Center Votes (CTV) and the Office of the National Litigation (BCEN).We may further recall that, following the publication of 2011 election results, the Prosecutor of Port-au-Prince lodged allegation concerning the corruption and fraud within the CEP to Pierre Louis Opont, then the Director General of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP). However, Opont rejected their allegation and reiterated about the acceptability of the results as the contested results were approved by the National Complaints and Challenges Bureau.
