Tensions are very high at the moment when the results of the 28th November election was released last night 7th December 2010. The results was saw Mirlande Manigat with 31.7%, Jude Celestin with 22.48% and Michel Martelly with 21.84%. The people know they voted for Manigat and Martelly, so how did Celestin squeeze into the top two?
This is the key reason why protester's have hit the streets, torching car tires, throwing rubble and ripping down and igniting Jude Celestin posters.
Following Twitter feeds continually there have been major riots all over the city, with burning of the Jude Celestin HQ, to blockading roads in Petionville. The common occurance is throwing of rocks, rubble and stones at moving vehicles and burning of tires.
Waking up this morning to the smell of burning rubber was not very pleasant, but seeing the smoke from our balcony just brought the chaos here too close for comfort.
All this is happening because the people of Haiti know that Jude Celestin could not have gotten 22.48% of the votes.
Martelly supporters are lining the streets all over the country. The youtube clip up above is the Kenscoff gang heading towards the CEP building in Petionville. Where the election results were announced last night.
Chaos has ensued and we are all on standby to wait and watch to see what happens now. Prayers are needed now to bring peace and calm to this devastated nation.
