Haiti 's presidential runoff, originally scheduled for Jan. 16, has been postponed and no new date has yet been set, Haiti 's Provisional Electoral Council said. Pierre Louis Opont, head of the council, told local media that the runoff cannot be held on schedule because the results of the first round of election have not been evaluated, and about one more month is needed to complete the work. According to the results of the first round of election held on Nov. 28, Mirlande Manigat, former first lady and candidate for the National Gathering of Progressive Democrats (RNDP), took first place with 31.37 percent. The results led to large-scale protests in Port-au-Prince, Haiti 's capital, causing dozens of deaths and injuries. The protesters called on the cancellation of the election results, saying that the ruling party had cheated in the election. The Provisional Electoral Council decided to investigate and assess the results in early December. Haitians are facing many difficulties now, including dealing with the aftermath of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake and the cholera epidemic that has killed more than 2,707 people.
