Haitian Electoral Court Is Outlining FuturePort-au-Prince, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) Although there are still some sectors to elect their representatives, what will be the future Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), which will end the interrupted election of the new constitutional president of Haiti, is outlining.

Trade unions intend to keep Edith Joseph, the universities ratified Marie Carmel Paul Austin, and the media will be represented by Leopold Berlager.

The protestant church elected Dr. Fritznel Joseph, and the followers of voodoo to Euvonie Georges Auguste, and there are some representatives of the managerial sector, human rights, the Catholic Church and women’s organizations, to be chosen.

Haiti’s acting President, Jocelerme Privert, granted yesterday 48 hours more to the sectors that have problems with the election of its members, although it urged those missing, so the process is not delayed.

He recalled that the training of CEP is an important step in the transition agreement that provides the organization of the April 24 presidential elections’ runoff and whoever is elected, will take office on May 14.

With the electoral action and the actual training of a transitional government led by a new prime minister, Privert aims to overcome the situation created by the end of the mandate of President, Michel Martelly, without having chosen a successor.

Haiti has been carried since 2015 a political crisis that deepened when the opposition refused to accept the October 25 electoral results for considering them a fraud.

The first round of the presidential election left governing party member, Jovenel Moise, and opposition, Jude Celestin, as the most voted ones. The latter rejected the October 25 election results for considering them a fraud.
