Twelve Candidates In Haiti Election Demand Election Cancellation

Here is a picture of twelve out of Haiti's 18 presidential candidates making a public statement on the day of the election. They say the vote should be canceled because of massive fraud.

Numerous occasions of electoral fraud were recorded on the day of the election. Voter intimidation and gangs entering polling stations and stuffing ballot boxes with candidates of their choice. There were also many incidents where voters showed in the polling places and not being able to vote. Considering that people are not allowed to drive on election day in Haiti, It was reported that some voters had to go to four or five different voting stations before they could cast their ballot.
