Haiti has a new President after prolonged political stalemate

Jovenel Moise, new Haiti President-elect

Haitian businessman Jovenel Moise has been officially declared winner of November’s presidential election.

Mr Moise, a 48-year-old banana exporter, was elected with 55.6% of the vote, well ahead of his closest rival, an electoral tribunal confirmed.

Mr Moises’s closest rival Jude Celestin, had 19.5% of the vote.

Officials dismissed allegations of fraud. But some protesters marched in the capital, Port-Au-Prince.

Haiti has been blighted by political instability for decades, and is still recovering from Hurricane Matthew, which killed up to 1,000 people in October.
