Preval Becomes President In "Election Deal"
18 Feb 2006
On February 16th, Rene Preval was declared the winner of the Haiti’s presidential election. It was claimed that Preval had been just shy of 50%, but some of the blank votes were subtracted from the total, giving Preval the majority. 129 seats in parliament are also up for grab and it is the legislature that will approve Haiti's prime minister. Brian Concannon writes, "In all likelihood, a correct tabulation of the votes would have given Mr. Preval a first round victory, as exit polls and unofficial tabulations had predicted ... The deal provides leverage for those seeking to delegitimize Preval's presidency and block the progressive social and economic policies that he was elected to implement."
