Haiti - Election Day, Many Journalists Unable to get Elections Accreditation

Haiti Election Day Update - Many Journalists are complaining they did not get any accreditation from the Electoral Council in order to report from inside the voting centers... Some ask is it because the CEP does not want them to witness the "MAGOUY" that is about to take place...

KREYOL: Haiti Election Day - JOUNALIS ap pleynen, KEP a pa vle ba yo akreditasyon pou yo kouvri jounen election an... Gen yon jounalis ki mande tet li: Eske se poutet KEP a pa vle nou wè MAGOUY ki pwal fet yo?" Hmmm Kisa ou panse de sa???

7:26 PM - 8 Aug 2015, Haitian journalist Jacqueline Charles of the Miami Herald tweets:

"I can't believe this CEP worker is telling me, "this is the reality." Since 10 am unable to get #elections accreditation. #Haiti"

9:08 PM - 8 Aug 2015, Jacqueline Charles tweets:

"Finally got my press credentials. It only took 12 hours. But some political party monitors still empty handed. Polls open at 6 am. #Haiti"

She may have her credentials but many Haitian journalist in Haiti are not so lucky.

Aroune 7:00 am Sunday, Election Day, Journalist of Haiti radio Signal FM were still complaining that they did not receive any accreditation from the CEP.

That of course means, they may have to report from the OUTSIDE.

What do you think about that?

Jah love. Give thanks and praises for Jacqueline Charles' tweets.

I will have to keep track of my tweets about Ayiti.

Still, it is a sad situation that journalists in Ayiti are still waiting for credentials.

Blessed
