Jude Celestin, Jean Charles Moise and Jovenel Moise
Here are the three leading candidates Jude Celestin, Jean Charles Moise and Jovenel Moise.
As per the announcement of Pierre-Louis Opont, the director general of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) on November 5th, the names of the first three finishers in the presidential race are, Jovenel Moïse from PHTK party (1st place 511,992 votes or 32.81% of total votes), Jude Célestin, LAPEH (2nd place total 394,390 or 25.27% votes), and Moise Jean-Charles, Platfòm Pitit Dessalin (3rd place, total 222,646 or 14.27% votes). However, the win in the first round by Jovenel Moïse, handpicked by the outgoing President Martelly, has raised suspicion of massive frauds. Eight Presidential candidates (G8), including Jude Célestin and Moise Jean-Charles with 6 others, representing 49.81% of total votes have signed a joint note requesting the Provisional Election Commission (CEP) to form an independent commission to inquire about the alleged frauds affecting the integrity of the October 25, 2015 election.
