Fixing Haiti’s crisis of confidence | Miami Herald

Haiti's Provisional Electoral Council — CEP —wisely decided on Monday to postpone Sunday's presidential runoff election, as well as parliamentary runoffs and voting for local offices. Given the violence and accusations of fraud swirling around earlier rounds of balloting, the runoff was discredited even before votes were cast. 

The delay does not by itself offer a resolution of Haiti's electoral crisis, however. What needs to happen is an honest, credible effort to investigate what went wrong earlier — and fix it.
