In Gressier, the Haitian National Police (PNH) moved three vehicles parked less than 100 m from the Voting centre.

In Pestel the citizens came out under rain to go vote.

"I have just voted to express my solidarity with the electoral process. I invite all the people to do the same. Elections must be conducted in an impartial and neutral manner. The State is getting away from the process," declared Camille Junior Edouard Minister of Justice when he voted this morning at the Petion-Ville High School.
