Manigat and Celestin go to Haiti elections run-off

Haiti’s presidential elections will go to a second-round run-off between former First Lady Mirlande Manigat and government technocrat Jude Celestin, protegé of outgoing President Rene Preval, electoral authorities said on Tuesday.

The Provisional Electoral Council announced the run-off between the two top vote-winners after no candidate gained the more than 50 percent required to win in the troubled first round of the presidential and legislative elections held on November 28.
