Brazil Congratulates Haiti for Elections Well Done

The Brazilian government sent a message, Wednesday, February 8, congratulating the Haitian people on the first round of general elections to choose their parliamentary representatives and president.

Over 3 million people were registered to vote in Monday’s, February 6, elections, and, according to the Electoral Council, between 75% and 80% of the registered voters turned out at the polls around the country.

"This kind of turnout, in a country where voting is not mandatory, attests the Haitian people’s commitment to the country’s administrative normalization and the revitalization of its institutions.

"It also confirms their confidence in the process overseen by the collaboration between the transitional government and the international community," the message states.

According to the message, the Brazilian-led United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) played "an essential role in guaranteeing the security necessary for democratic elections to be held, for the Haitian people to reassume full control over their country’s destiny."

The Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Relations ("Itamaraty") informed that the official election results should be announced within three days. A runoff, if required, is scheduled for March 19.

    Brazil Congratulates Haiti for Elections
    How come ! Just be serious….for once.

    Just refer to the article published in this same site, bot later than….yesterday, with the headline :

    BRAZIL Troops Use Guns and Tear Gas during HaÀ¯ti Elections !!!!!

    Were the elections so quiet that you had no reason to use guns and tear gas ????
    Then why did you use them ? Just to play or impress the HaÀ¯tians electors ?

    And read with attention what the article I refer to says : BRAZIL troops…….not MINUSTAH troops, because Brazil Troops are only around 1000 out of 7000 soldiers of the MINUSTAH !
    That means that ONLY Brazil Troops used guns and tear gas !

    Whoaaa !

    Even more strange !
