The creation of the Independent Commission on Electoral Evaluation was possible with the consensus of the two leading contending presidential candidates Jude Célestin and Jovenel Moïse. The commission can receive support and advice of national and international experts and it is empowered to define its own methodology and decide its scope and extent of investigations. It would analyze the available information concerning the ballots and proceedings of the vote tabulation centers. As per Prime Minister Evans Paul, the main goal of this Commission would be to create political stability in the country and ensure that the voting process is transparent and free from all biases.

Miami Police arrested Farah Juste at protest

Here is a picture of Haitian singer Farah Juste in a protest against recent election in Miami. She was arrested by Miami Police

Haitian-American protest singer and songwriter, Farah Juste, was arrested by Miami police while she took part in protesting the presidential election results in Haiti. The majority of Haitians believe the elections were rigged to put Jovenel Moise in first place. According to Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), Moise received 33% of the vote, but exit polls show just 6% of voters chose him. On a follow-up poll when the preliminary results were made public, the same sampling of voters said the elections were unfair (90%); whereas the exit polls showed 82% thought the elections were fair.

Juste, along with other protestors, showed up at a rally for Jovenel Moise, a presidential candidate running under the Parti Haitien Tet Kale banner. The rally happened at Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Arts Center. The police later let her go in spite of the fact the demonstrators she was with did not possess a protest permit.

Antoine Rodon Bien Aime accused own party PHTK of fraud

Here is a picture of Antoine Rodon Bien Aime who decided to accuse his own party PHTK of fraud.

Antoine Rodon Bien-Aimée, a deputy of the parliament, who is rumored to have switched from Martelly's PHTK to Jude Celestine's LAPEH Party, has accused the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) for orchestrating a massive fraud. He has accused the involvement of his own party members from PHTK in the fraud, a party from which he has been elected recently. As per Rodon's allegation, one Canadian citizen named Sylvain Coté, working for UNOPS, changed the ballots while they were being transported from Bureau Electoral Departementaux (BEDs) to the tabulation center in the capital city. Coté is an expert on electoral issues and had served many responsible positions in MINUSTAH, IDB, USAID, OAS, CIDA and NDI before joining UNOPS on electoral logistics. Once he was even a member of a firm belonging to ex-Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe.
