#4984: More on 95 Elections Results (fwd)
From: Max Blanchet <MaxBlanchet@worldnet.att.net>
Lest I be accused of using Libčte as the only source of
data on previous elections, I also checked back issues of
Haiti en Marche (HEM).
In its issue of August 23 to 29 1995, Vol. IX, No. 28, HEM
reported only the following results (West), which are not as
complete as Libčte's, but essentially corroborate them:
Wesner EMMANUEL 212,714 63.6%
Jean-Robert SABALA 134,514 40.2%
Turneb DELPE 44,141 13.2%
>From these votes and the percentages, one can compute
the denominator, or 334,456, 334,612 and 334,402, the
variation being due to the rounding off of the percentages.
The average is 334,490 which is close to the total reported
in my earlier post (334,422.) Keeping in mind that the total
number of votes was twice that number because people were
voting for two senators, 668,844 votes were cast.
This means that all the other candidates combined got
277,475 votes (668,844 - 212,714 - 134,514 - 44,141.)
Thus, all the votes were taken into account.
AGAIN, IT IS CLEAR FROM THE ABOVE -- BUTRESSED BY
IDENTICAL DATA FROM TWO SEPARATE SOURCES LIBČTE &
HEM -- THAT THE METHOD USED IN 2000 WHICH TOOK INTO
ACCOUNT ONLY THE VOTES OBTAINED BY THE TOP FOUR
VOTE-GETTERS WAS NOT USED IN 1995 AS CLAIMED.
