Haiti election results raise questions in Caribbean

Bridgetown, Barbados, CANA - Questions are being raised 
about the legitimacy of the mandate secured by Jean-
Bertrand Aristide at the November 26 presidential poll 
in Haiti. Among those raising questions is the former 
Prime Minister of St. Lucia, Sir John Compton, who 
headed a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) delegation to 
Haiti for the election. Sir John said that there was a 
very low voter response and at best it would seem that 
Aristide had secured merely 15 to 20 per cent of the 
popular votes.
