PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – The top pundit of the ruling Tèt Kale regime and surrogates attempted to justify the destruction and mishandling of election ballots.
The sympathizers for the ruling party were responding to protests that have sparked in the two largest cities of Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien after thousands of ballots have been found burned, destroyed or left insecure.
Cyrus Sibert and surrogates of the Parti Haitien Tet Kale (PHTK) candidate for president, Jovenel Moïse, circulated a note addressed to “independent journalists” but for the Provisional Electoral Council of Pierre Louis Opont and political parties.
The note, in its essence, sets the rules for contesting the results of the election, an election in which a vast majority have decried massive fraud of having taken place.
The Tet Kale regime said that “after votes have been counted, ballots have no importance.”
The regime is essentially precluding the possibility of a recount or investigation of ballots. Also, Tet Kale, is setting the terms for detecting fraud.
As the electoral council has set itself to decide on the allegations of massive fraud, it is already being denounced by human rights and civil society organizations that the threshold for accepting evidence in a completely opaque system is beyond reasonable.
