Haiti - Elections : PHTK lawyers protest at CEP
Excerpts from the letter sent to the CEP :
"[...] he was surprised to find that the name of candidate Wilfrid Gelin is not on the list of definitive results published by the CEP for the Senate of the department of Centre this, for CEP's investigation http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19704-haiti-flash-final-results-of-the-senate-election-for-the-south.html
A Citizen still less a Candidate elected by the sovereign (people) can not be the object of a secret investigation, anonymous, an investigation for which he is unaware of the ins and outs;
The PHTK as well as the Candidate intend to protest and, as a matter of fact, protest in the most formal and categorical way that a protest can be made to the non-publication of the results of the department of Centre concerning the elected Senator Wilfrid Gelin;
The PHTK wishes to draw to the attention of Honorable Members of the CEP that the Electoral Decree does not authorize the CEP to defer the publication of the result of the election of a candidate for investigation.
The law firm requests you, Honorable Members of the CEP, to publish the result concerning the elected Senator of the department of Centre , Wilfrid Gelin.
Recall that at the beginning of December 2016, the CEP at the publication of the preliminary results (subject to change due to possible challenges), had declared elected the candidate Wilfrid Gelin (PHTK) with 23.77% of votes http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19427-haiti-flash-results-of-elections-1-3-senate-complementary-legislative.html
