Haiti - Elections : Fraud festival of Jacmel
Friday, several representatives of different political parties in Jacmel have continued to request cancellation of the November 28 elections. These speak of a "Blackout" at the departemental election office of South East (BED) where 5 days after election day, no light has been made, on the numerous incidents that disrupted the smooth conduct of the elections.

The relationship between Eleanor Mentor (President), Jean Philippe Rony (Vice President) and Antenord Warrior (Advisors at the Departmental Electoral Office of South East (BED) are very conflicting which has had serious consequences for the functioning of the BED.

Since November 28, in the evening, after its decision to close the BED, in response to spontaneous demonstrations of the various political party representatives and voters alleging fraud and irregularities, "Councillor Antenord Guerrier left the department under pretext which it was taken as an hostage and save narrowly" declared Éleonor Mentor, "I'm in the oven and the mill, at the tabulation center, since I'm the only one present. As President, I must assume my responsibilities. As for other members, they do not care" she said, while taking her distance from the local press, she refused any statement.
