Friends and supporters of Jovenel Moise in the streets
Here are some friends and supporters of Jovenel Moise in the streets of Port-au-Prince demanding the holding of the second tour of election.
On Sunday, April 24, 2016, thousands of supporters of presidential candidate Jovenel Moise (PHTK) came to the street demanding quick second phase of elections to end a crisis of power in the country. The runoff has been postponed several times due to instable political conditions and other reasons. In the first round of presidential elections, held on October 25, 2015, Martelly nominated Jovenel Moise secured first position with 32.8% votes, defeating runner up Jude Celestin (LAPEH) with 25.3% votes. There were numerous allegations of false voting, manipulation on counting and there were huge protests against the results published by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) favoring Martelly's candidate Jovenel Moise. On November 29, 2015, Celestin and another seven presidential candidates, representing 49.81% of the vote, gave an ultimatum that no honest, transparent and credible election is possible by the Martelly administration in conjunction with the corrupt CEP along with the support of Police Nationale d'Haïti (PNH). Now Martelly is no more in power. Two bitter opponents, Moise (PHTK) and Celestin (LAPEH), are going to join hands and fight against Interim President Privert, demanding a quick election. There is a possibility to watch a joint rally from PHTK and LAPEH supporters on the streets demanding early elections.
