#4114: Haitian Elections: Amy Wilentz /LA Times..a comment (fwd)


Thanks, Amy, for that article, generally enlightening. However, the comment 
on the lack of a need for a runoff election is shocking, coming from her. 
Doesn't she know that there is a requirement for a runoff election for those 
positions that don't get a majority of the valid votes cast? According to the 
observers, there are many Lavalas candidates (and perhaps others) that didn't 
get that majority, so there will (must) be runoff elections, and that is 
proper. They are scheduledd, I think, for June 25.
