In a press conference, the CEP informed that at Vallières, Northeast and Roseau in the Grand'Anse, four voting centres could not open their doors because of bad weather. According to Léopold Berlanger, President of the CEP "We see that it was a calm and serene day that has gone smoothly so far", voking isolated incidents in Port Margot (fire attempt - two ballot boxes burned) to isance and Trou du Nord, as well as several arrests "[...] when we take the day roughly and according to the testimony we have, the day is going well in a satisfactory way, that is to say without major incident, without serious violence, without disturbance of polling and no tension in the streets... citizens freely exercise their right to vote [...]" Concerning a possible extension [the offices close at 4:00 p.m.] he indicated that at 4:00 p.m. voters who will still be in line can vote. For voting centers that have opened late, evaluation will be done on a case-by-case basis, depending on attendance.

On the other hand, in Ouanaminthe (North East), there was a gunshot wounded in a confrontation between supporters of two candidates to the Senate of Northeast.

5 people were arrested including a police officer in Cap-Haitien and weapons were seized according to the spokesman of the PNH. he National Police arrested 8 individuals and seized three vehicles in the Artibonite. 18 troublemakers arrested throughout the territory according to the mid-day report.

It would seem that an unknown number of police officers, representatives, and supervisors are deprived of their right to vote if they are not in their respective areas, the CEP will have to explain.

We are told a great affluence to the Voting centre Don Bosco (Vertières) in Cap-Haïtien in the North.

At St. Anne's Church (Soleil 19) ), individuals exert pressure on voters by telling them for who to vote.

The voting takes place well at downtown Petit-Goâve. People began shyly to vote in the various voting centers. The police provide security for voters. No incidents so far recorded. HL/ HaitiLibre / Guyto Mathieu (Correspondant Petit-Goâve)
