Haiti - FLASH : Failure of the BCED, what are the demands of candidates ?
Instead, the lawyers of the three losing candidates stood together and denounced a technical flaw in the drawing of judges in violation of Article 17 of the Electoral Decree, forcing after numerous strained and tense exchanges the President of BCED Wally Desance to postpone auditions to Wednesday 7 December.
The incident occurred when Wally Desance, called 3 judges to sit (Me Merlan Bélabre, Martel Jean-Claude and Fritzner Duclair). The lawyers of the protesters recalled with one voice that lawyers and judges to sit on the electoral court must be chosen by drawing, from lists provided by the Port-au-Prince bar for lawyers and the Dean of the court for judges.
Me Evelt Fanfan, lawyer of Moïse Jean-Charle (Pitit Dessalin) stressed that it is impossible to trust judges chosen by the Provisional Electoral Council (PEC) to hear a case in which a decision of the CEP is challenged.
Me André Michel, lawyer of Jude Célestin announced that he would summon the CEP to provide the complete list of judges given to him by the dean of the court.
