PRESS RELEASE

Statement by the Embassy of the United States Following the Publication of Results of the November 28 National Elections by the CEP

7 December 2010
2010/ 99

As Haiti enters the period of electoral contestation, it is essential that all political actors remain calm and encourage their supporters to do the same. The United States, together with Haiti's international community partners, stands ready to support efforts to thoroughly review irregularities in support of electoral results that are consistent with the will of the Haitian people expressed in their votes.

Like others, the Government of the United States is concerned by the Provisional Electoral Council's announcement of preliminary results from the November 28 national elections that are inconsistent with the published results of the National Election Observation Council (CNO), which had more than 5,500 observers and observed the vote count in 1,600 voting centers nationwide, election-day observations by official U.S. observers accredited by the CEP, and vote counts observed around the country by numerous domestic and international observers.

Haiti's transition to democracy over the past 24 years has seen many successes, overcoming major challenges. The 2010 elections represent a critical test of whether the Haitian people will determine their destiny through their vote. The United States is committed to the consolidation of democracy in Haiti and calls on the Government of Haiti, the CEP and all political forces to ensure that the will of the people is fully reflected in the outcome of this election.

Sisters and Brothers,

I applaud the idea of a coalition of five, and they can vote amongst themselves to choose the leader or president.

The other four can be replaced by the top 4 vote getters in the election of 2015.

That's an unfair statement.

There are many of us in the U.S. that spend all of our spare money to help Haiti.

I've personally started a school, triaged and administered first aid to over 300 Haitians in Leogane immediately following the earthquake.

i think that even before the elections day (nov. 28th) the CEP and rene preval already had the results set up. it is so frustrated that after so much desasters in haiti political leaders still don't want to care about the will and the needs of the people.

i think we need a new political class.not the same people from LAVALAS divided by thousands groups to fulfill their wallets.

how many million dollars are already spent after the earthquake?

It is nice that the U.S. Embassy spoke out but it is not going to change anything! If Preval cared he wouldn't have conned Celestin into the secondary knowing all eyes on him! Preval won't listen to the Haitian people, you think he cares about Americans! Besides Americans can't control what is going on in Haiti but as soon as there is trouble, the haitian government know who to call! Mark my words, if Celestin is president he will be escorted into exile just like Aristide! Ayiti pa konn sa yo
