The Haitian Parliament is calling on the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) to respect the deadline of December 29th, for the publication of the definitive results of last month's legislative and presidential elections.
The demand of the Haitian parliament comes a week after the electoral court on Monday, ordered a review of 12% randomly selected ballot following a legal challenge launched by third and fourth place finishers in the process Moise Jean Charles and Maryse Narcisse, against Jovenel Moise, whom the CEP has awarded the presidency in the first round with 55.67% of the votes.
President of the Chamber of Deputies, Cholzer Chancy, is calling on the CEP to publish the final results of the presidential election on December 29 as scheduled on the electoral calendar.
Deputy of Delmas Gary Bordeau, who is also the Quaestor of the Office of the Lower House, said the decisions of BCEN must be technical and not political.
“The popular vote cannot be defiled or invalidated. The elections are over. Advisers must fully assume their responsibilities by publishing the results on December 29th.”
Bodeau said that the strategy of dragging the electoral process beyond the 7th of February to prevent the installation of the President-elect is undemocratic.
“The CTV, the BCEN or the CEP cannot mortgage the future of 10 million Haitians. The hardliner or daring has its limits,” Bordeau added.
