8233: "Just the facts ma'am" (re. Convergence) (fwd)

From: Lance Durban <lpdurban@yahoo.com>

The recent NYT article posted reports...


  The opposition Democratic Convergence is a 15-party alliance
  made up of former Aristide supporters and one-time government
  officials of the Duvalier dictatorship, which was ousted by
  the  military in 1986. 


Can anyone provide...
  1.  a list of these 15 parties
  2.  claimed membership of each
  3.  number of candidates from each party in the May 2000 
  4.  number of votes each of those candidates garnered
  5.  percentage of total votes each party can therefore claim

This is just to get an idea of who we are talking about here. 
Contributers to this list are full of anecdotal evidence
supporting one side or the other, but terribly lacking in
numeric data.
