Here is the actual letter from Néhémy Joseph to President Michel Martelly announcing his resignation from the CEP
With the resignation of Nehemy Joseph, a pressure is building on the CEP for a total collapse; the fate of the CEP has become uncertain. It has raised the possibility of more resignation and a question mark on the fate of the October 25 election for president, mayors and members of parliament. In his three page resignation letter to the President, Néhémy has conveyed his frustration with the workings of the CEP. The council has been plagued by credibility problems over decisions and disagreements among members. Joseph had further informed the President about several lapses which were allowed to be continued without any corrective measures, and moreover, he was not happy with the selection of three electoral advisers by the President of CSPJ, Me Anel Alexis Joseph.
