OAS Haiti Election Report Analysis - Flaws and Unsupported Conclusions

More Haiti Election Drama - The OAS final report for the first round of the Haiti presidential elections has been analyzed and found to be flawed and with unsupported conclusions.


Haiti Voting Pin - Pep La Vote, Now What?

Basically, the OAS report is based on the review of a SAMPLE of of the 11,181 tally sheets (Proces Verbal) and they did not explain how they came up with this sample.

What is going on?

This analysis was conducted by the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR).

Mark Weisbrot, CEPR Co-Director of and co-author of the analysis says...

"It is highly unusual and perhaps unprecedented for any electoral authority to change the results of an election without a full recount... I can't recall ever seeing something like this....

... But for a foreign mission to do so with such flawed methodology, and for foreign governments to then bring pressure on Haiti to accept the changed result - that really makes a complete travesty of the democratic process."
