Haiti Update: Electoral Runoff and Aristide's Status - by Stephen Lendman

Despite sham November presidential and parliamentary elections and growing calls for new ones, a runoff March 20 second round is scheduled, led by two Washington-approved presidential candidates:

-- former first lady Mirlande Manigat of the right-wing Rally of Progressive National Democrats (RDNP); and

-- "Sweet Micky" Michel Martelly, a right-wing anti-Aristide entertainer.
