Election day hasn’t even ended here in Haiti, but already UN helicopters are circling over-head and violent protesters have begun rioting, not only in Port-au-Prince, but here in the quiet suburb of Petion-ville, as well.
Most of the presidential candidates, except Jude Celestin, the protégé of current President Preval, are contesting results that haven’t been announced yet, since ballot boxes were said to have arrived at polling places already stuffed with votes for Preval’s future son-in-law.
Things don’t look good. I will continue to update as long as internet service is available.
Please keep Haiti in your thoughts and prayers!
Oh wow – sounds like so many parts of Africa. Strength to you, and keep safe.
Will keep you all in my thoughts & prayers. Stay safe.
Thanks, Robin–thanks so much!
