Authorities in Haiti have issued a new timetable for the country’s repeatedly postponed presidential election. On Friday, the Provisional Electoral Council announced that Haiti’s presidential vote will be held on November 20. A second round would be held January 29.
There were 27 candidates vying to lead Haiti for the next five years in an election redo set for October 9. But balloting was suspended due to the destructive passage of Hurricane Matthew.
Council chief Leopold Berlanger said five weeks are needed to prepare for the vote since numerous voting centers were damaged or destroyed and some roads remain blocked.
