Haiti’s Ruling party accepts defeat

Haiti’s ruling INITE (UNITY) Party has acknowledged that it may have lost Sunday’s elections which were marred by allegations of fraud.

The announcement has raised hopes of a peaceful power transfer in the quake-hit and cholera-gripped nation.
International election monitors including the Organisation of American States and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) have said that the elections were valid, despite what they called serious irregularities.

However, the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti has denounced the elections and called for a new national poll.

It says the country deserves elections that are in compliance with the rule of law in Haiti.
One of its staff attorneys, Nicole Phillips, told BBC Caribbean her organisation does not agree with the observers who have endorsed the election.
