The 1988 Haitian general election took place on 17 January 1988, after the 1987 general election had been cancelled due to an election day massacre of voters either orchestrated or condoned by the Haitian military. The elections were boycotted by most candidates who had contested the previous elections and turnout was lower than 4%.
The official results were made public on 24 January, and it was a victory for Leslie Manigat of the Rally of Progressive National Democrats. However, he was removed from office on 20 June, in a military coup.
