Jovenel Moise is Elected President of Haiti

By Garry Pierre-Pierre

After a series of failed votes, Jovenel Moise was declared Haiti’s president by the country’s Provisional Electoral Council winning 55.67 percent of the vote.

Moise, a banana exporter and political neophyte defeated 26 other candidates to win an outright vote, which was held on Sunday Nov. 20th. If he had garnered less than 50 percent of the vote, a runoff of the top two vote getters would be held in January.

His closest opponent, Jude Celestin, came in a distant second with 19.52 percent of the vote.
