Haiti: Protesters Demand Ouster of President Michel Martelly

Hdlns6 haiti elections 2016

In Haiti, massive street protests continue as residents demand the ouster of President Michel Martelly. This comes after protests succeeded in postponing Sunday’s presidential runoff vote amid a race mired in fraud. The runoff vote was slated to feature only one candidate, President Martelly’s handpicked successor, Jovenel Moïse, after his competitor, Jude Célestin, boycotted the election. The United States has been criticized for supporting the disputed October elections.
