Michel Martelly Wins Haiti's Presidential Election


Michel Martelly Wins Haiti’s Presidential Election

The first round of votes in Haiti’s presidential election caused riots in the streets as Mirlande Manigat appeared to be in the lead.

It has now been reported that musician Michel Martelly is the winner of Haiti’s presidential election, according to official preliminary results.

Pras Michel, Martelly’s Secretary of State pick and former Fugee member threatened more protest similar to Egypt if Martelly doesn’t come out victorious. Pras has publicly supported Martelly even when Wyclef attempted to run for office.

Manigat was a law professor with 32 years of political experience while Martelly was a pop singer with a reputation for humor.

There have been rumors of fraud during the first round of votes and the final results are due April 16th. Hopefully they won’t burn the country down as Pras promised if Martelly does not win.
