Words of the Day, December 8th

4:15 PM In what was the shortest statement of the day, Michel Martelly urged his supporters to 'veye anwo, veye anba', to keep protesting to defend their vote, all the while avoiding the use of violence. He announced (unsurprisingly) that he will not accept the results and accused the CEP of causing chaos in the country.

1:00 PM Preval just appeared on national T.V urging candidates who do not agree with the announced results to make their claims through the electoral disputes process as prescribed by the electoral law.  He called on Haitians to protest peacefully, defended the credibility of the Electoral Council, and emphasized its role as the 'ultimate referee' in all election matters. In response to questions about the lack of correlation between the announced results and the polls/ CNO results, Preval simply answered "Sondaj pa resulta": polls are not results.


  1. How the Grinch stole the elections. Preval give up for the love of your people.
