Haiti Elections - 25 October, Was there really MORE Mandataires than Voters?

Haitian journalist Tamara Orion once said: "With 53 candidates for President, there is NO WAY for elections to be held for it to be good elections." Did you know? The electoral council (CEP) distributed 915,675 accreditations to political parties out of the 917,068 in total that were printed...

KREYOL: Haiti - Nan Jwèt FOUTBOL, genyen 1 abit, 2 juge de ligne... Nan Jwèt Election genyen 9 abit ak 917,068 juge de ligne. Nan jwèt election, juge de ligne rantre nan jwet la, yo bay gol tou, gol sa yo konte!!! Heyyy... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Let's do some MATH...

There were 13,725 polling stations in Haiti; multiply that by 54 candidates for president who need a 'mandataire' in each polling station; They need observers too...

One more thing: There are 5,871,450 registered voters in Haiti, assuming that 30% of the voters voted, that's 1,761,435 votes...

Conclusion: The number of accreditations printed is MORE than half of the votes... RNDDH reported that some of these mandataires voted multiple times...

Hmmmm...

In the game of Soccer Haitians love so much, there is ONE referee and TWO assistant referees (linesmen)... How can we have good elections in Haiti when the number of referees and linesmen is more than half of the players in the field???

What do you think about that?

sa mw panse de sa kap pase an Ayiti la, ankor yon lot fwa Repiblik Potopwens la fe dap piyan sou tout res peyi a. Sa vle di tout pwoblem eleksyon kap diskite, kote tout kandida ap di se yo ki genyen.

Se yon jwet koken, visye, malfra, kap fini ak peyi a. Men nou gen de chans.

Premye chans la se ke mesye blan la toujou, lel pran fwet li tout ti neg sal sa yo ap rantre nan kaz yo. Dezyem chans la se ke se Repiblik Potopwens la yap kraze paske res peyi a pa enterese yo. Mesi
