PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, CMC – The United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti Monday called on all candidates in the second round of presidential and legislative elections on Sunday to show patience and restraint as they wait for the results of the vote.In a statement, the UN peacekeeping mission said that the message of restraint and clam was also being sent to the followers of the candidates, warning that the future of the impoverished Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country is at stake.“The second round of the presidential and legislative elections has concluded in considerably better conditions than the first round despite some logistical and administrative problems and isolated acts of violence in certain departments,” the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).“MINUSTAH congratulates the Haitian people for the patriotic spirit, calm and discipline which they have shown,” it added, praising the efforts of the authorities to make the run-off credible and allow the popular will to be expressed. “The evident enthusiasm of the electorate is clear evidence of the importance Haitians attach to democracy.”Former first lady Mirlande Manigat and popular musician Michel Martelly faced off in the presidential poll, which was delayed by two months when violence erupted after disputed first round results in December.Those results initially put Mrs. Manigat and outgoing President Rene Préval’s party candidate, Jude Celestin, in first and second place, qualifying for the run-off, with Martelly less than one percentage point behind in third place, but thus excluded.His supporters set up burning barricades of timber, boulders and flaming tyres. After a re-examination of the ballots, the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) last month announced that the second run off would be between Martelly and Mrs. Manigat.Results of the second round are not expected for several days.“While awaiting the end of the counting and the tabulation of ballots, MINUSTAH urges all candidates and their followers to show patience and restraint, thus giving an example of democracy, since it is the future of the country that is at stake,” MINUSTAH said.MINUSTAH, with almost 12,250 uniformed personnel currently on the ground, has been in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere since mid-2004 after then president Jean-Bertrand Aristide went into exile amid violent unrest.Aristide returned to the country mere days before Sunday’s poll despite pleas by the United States thayt his presence could affect the voting.Aristide’s Lavalas party was not allowed by the CEP to contest the elections.Source: Cana News Tweet Sharing is caring!
