Haiti - Elections : Attention you are filmed !
The Primature informes that as part of the measures to ensure the security of the elections of 20 November, the Government decided to set up an electronic surveillance system with cameras and drones in the vicinity and in the spaces of the Voting Centers.

This meshing of the territory will be carried out by experts in electronic surveillance who will retransmit the information in real time to the competent authorities in order to be able to react to the slightest incident.

The Government will thus have a data bank which will be used for the identification and prosecution of any troublemaker during and after the electoral process.

While many can rejoice in such an announcement, we have to be careful between the political announcements and the reality on the ground. As a reminder, in the last elections of October 25, 2015, identical measures had been announced by the previous Government https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-15563-haiti-flash-elections-begin-late-security-strengthened-haitielections.html "For safety the voting centers will be filmed during the elections this Sunday and data will be processed in real time in a dedicated Center," ad announced Prime Minister Evans Paul explaining that "cameras will be installed front the voting centres, and the use of drones equipped with cameras will transmit images to a server in Port-au-Prince in real time. These are the firms Sonergy S.A and Acces Haïti that after a tender will take care of the technical part of the collection, transmission and processing of data."

In addition, the Government has set up 3 phone numbers enabling the population to report acts that are detrimental to the conduct of the voting : 4891-1420, 4891-1428 and 4891-1419 . These numbers should not be used for emergencies, but only for reporting facts that may be detrimental to the election.
