Moise likely to be Haitian president
Initial results of the Haitian elections show that Jovenel Moise has won in the first round with 55.6% of the votes. Last year he was also the candidate with the majority of votes in the first round but when it came to the second round it was delayed several times amidst accusations of fraud, and the results of the first round were annulled.
This time no second round will be necessary as Moise has over 50% of the votes. Moise is an agricultural businessman and candidate for the Tet Kale party of former president Michel Martelly.
He will be certified as president on 29 December but the political parties can still challenge the result before that date.
