This year, Haitians have endured an earthquake, a cholera epidemic and now what many are calling a fraudulent election.
Demonstrations erupted Tuesday night in Port-au-Prince as the presidential election results were announced. The popular candidate Michel Martelly came in third place, and will therefore not take part in the second round run-off. Haitians say Martelly was pushed from the running by the current president Rene Preval, who favors another candidate - Jude Celestin.
According to NPR, the violence has spread past the capital city.
“The streets of Port-au-Prince are in flames. There are bottles in the streets. There are dumpsters that have been dragged out into the streets, and radio reports are saying this is happening all across the country.”
The international community, including the United States, has also expressed its concern that the election was, at the very least, questionable.
CNN reports the charges of fraud actually preceded the unveiling of the results.
“…before Martelly charged fraud Tuesday evening, the entire electoral process had come into question. ... Martelly said aloud what many others in Haiti were thinking: Preval would go to any lengths to ensure a win for Celestin and preserve the power of his party.”
The Telegraph quotes Preval, who warns protesters to cut down on the violence.
“Demonstrate, that is your right. But don't attack public buildings, businesses or private property…You are giving Haiti a bad image. Conflicts are not resolved by setting things on fire and breaking things. Pull yourselves together Haitians.”
However, some protesters claim that they are not the ones originating the violence.
“We started this protest peacefully and then all the way downtown there were no problems. But then the police started using violence to disperse the crowd.”
A runoff is scheduled to take place in January, but Haitians say they still want Marcelly.
“They will now contest a run off in January, but there are now calls for Marcelly to be included. He has until the 10th of December to launch an appeal.”

Haitians headed to the polls to elect their next president- for the second time this year. Voters have two choices: Bad-boy musician Michele J. Martelly and former first lady Mirlande Manigat. The Sydney Morning Herald reminds us what happened in the original presidential election.
“Haiti's first round of balloting in November was a disaster of the man-made variety...Some ballot boxes were dumped, others stuffed...plunging the process into a crisis resolved only through...intervention from foreign monitors.”
Manigat won that first round of elections. The New York Times’ Randall Archibold says the former first lady has portrayed herself as the adult in the race---while the younger Martelly is trying to change his image. (Video from Anvann Vote)
“Mr. Martelly, 50, is hoping...young people [will transform him] from one of the most popular entertainers here...who frequently disrobed on stage and has admitted to past crack cocaine use, into a respected, suit-wearing chief executive.”
Martelly doesn’t have much political experience- but he’s counting on the youth vote to carry his campaign. Al Jazeera reports on Martelly’s tactic.
“He’s having rallies where huge numbers of young people are coming out. He’s dancing, he’s singing, and he’s calling on them to support his campaign as a campaign of change.”
But- a twist in the final days before the vote may affect the final tally. Two days before the polls opened, former president Jean Bertrand Aristide returned to Haiti after being exiled in 2004. The New York Daily News reports- Aristide came back just to stir things up.
“Ignoring Obama administration pleas to stay away, Aristide arrived just in time to create turmoil on the eve of the election. He purports to be interested only in charitable work. Right.”
Officials barred Aristide’s party from entering this year’s election. Both Martelly and Manigat are more conservative than the former president. They hoped he would wait to come back until after the election.
NPR’s Carrie Kahn says, “The presidential candidates aren't so happy...But Manigat and Martelly have toned down their criticism of Aristide recently so as not to alienate his supporters.”
With a cholera epidemic spreading throughout the country- not to mention the 2010 earthquake that left more than a million homeless- The New York Daily News says a valid election would be the first step to rebuilding the country. Election results aren’t expected until March 31st.
