Haiti election result delay
THE announcement of Haiti’s provisional presidential election results has been delayed by four days and will now take place on Monday. Both former first lady Mirlande Manigat, 70, and popular singer Michel Martelly, 50, have expressed confidence that they triumphed in the March 20 run-off. The electoral commission said final results were not expected until April 16. The candidates are vying for the job of rebuilding a Caribbean nation that was devastated by a January 2010, earthquake that flattened the nation’s capital Port-au-Prince at the cost of more than 225,000 lives.
