The headline says it all…Haiti might as well cancel the March 20th run-off because this election has been signed, sealed, and delivered now that Wyclef has endorsed Martelly. I’m totally kidding, but it’s kind of a big deal considering a lot of the youth in Haiti really respect Wyclef for some reason.
Also in political news, campaigning for that same run-off began yesterday. New campaign posters are up and campaign events are popping up around the country, some drawing crowds of thousands of supporters. The big question is if more than 6% of the population will actually vote this time, as the constitution requires that a minimum of 10% of the electorate vote in a run-off for the results to be official. As always, we’ll see.
