Leid Stories – Haiti: Presidential Vote Rife with Fraud, Elections Council Suggests A Rerun; A Very Happy Birthday, Indeed – 06.01.16

A five-member independent council charged with oversight of Haiti’s contentious presidential election yesterday released its finding that the election was so marred by fraud, only a new election would restore voter confidence.

Kim Ives, editor of Haïti Liberté who has been reporting on Haiti and related developments, discusses the electoral council’s report and the ripple effects it appears to be having, including in the Obama administration.

Utrice Leid, host of Leid Stories, waxes somewhat philosophic on the occasion of her 63rd birthday.
