Democracy Now: Election Monitors OK Haiti Election


International election monitors say Haiti’s general election on Sunday was valid despite calls by 12 presidential candidates for the results to be thrown out. Monitors from the Organization of American States and Caricom acknowledged observing irregularities at the polls, but they said that should not invalidate the election. Colin Granderson headed the team of international election observers.

Colin Granderson: “The mission has considered whether the irregularities it has observed were of the magnitude and consistency that would invalidate the legitimacy of the process. The observations in the 11 electoral departments—the joint mission does not believe that these irregularities, as serious as they were—necessarily invalidates the process.”
