Jude Celestin and Jovenel Moise

Here is a picture of Jovenel Moise and Jude Celestin.

Out of the 54 candidates running to replace the outgoing Haitian President Michel Joseph Martelly, the names of two top finishing contestants are Jovenel Moise and Jude Celestin. As per the CEP's announcement, Jovenel Moise, a government backed candidate from the PHTK party of which President Martelly is the President, has received 511,992 votes or 32.8% of the vote in the October 25th poll. Jude Célestin, a Mechanical Engineer from Switzerland, a presidential candidate under the LAPEH banner, is an executive director of the government's construction ministry. He has secured 394,390 or 25.27% of total votes. Since none of them reached the 50% plus benchmark or 25% lead, a run-off election will be necessary on December 27th, 2015. The former senator Moise Jean-Charles, who came third in the official tally with 14.2% votes, has claimed that his supporters have found numerous partially burnt ballots checked with his name and many ballots favoring his support went missing. Otherwise, he would have won half of Haiti's 10 departments.
