Elections in Haiti
This article needs to be updated.(July 2016)
The 2010 presidential election took place on 28 November 2010, with a run-off election taking place on 20 March 2011.
No candidate received a majority of the vote cast in the first-round election. A second round was scheduled for 20 March 2011 with the two highest vote-getters, Mirlande Manigat and Jude Célestin. Protests claiming fraudulent voting resulted in the electoral commission removing Célestin from the race. This promoted Martelly from his original third-place finish in the first-round, to face Manigat in the run-off.
2010 and following
In January 2015, after a series of disputed, unconstitutional, electoral commissions named by President Martelly were rejected by the Parliament, a Provisional Electoral Council was created to plan the presidential and parliamentary elections later in 2015.
