The Supreme Electoral Court noted no massive fraud in the 12% vote checked at the tabulation center. In its decision issued yesterday the electoral judges noted no irregularities that can affect the electoral process.

Following the lawsuits initiated by presidential candidates Jude Célestin (Lapeh), Jean Charles Moise (Pitit Dessalines) and Maryse Narcisse (Fanmi Lavalas), challenging the preliminary results, the Supreme Electoral Court had ordered the verification of 12% of the ballots at random.

The decision of the Supreme Electoral Court, which can not be the subject of any appeal, was communicated last night to the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP).

The executive director of the CEP, Uder Antoine, assured that the electoral body will comply with the verdict of the court. He assured that the results of the presidential poll would be published today.
