Haiti has 56 candidates for president — NationNews Barbados


The council issued a statement late Friday saying that Levelt Francois was ruled out because of a drug conviction in the United States, while Jacky Lumarque was rejected because he had not received a discharge certificate from parliament certifying he had handled government funds appropriately when he ran a state education committee.

Neither Levelt nor Lumarque could be immediately reached for comment.

Another prominent candidate, former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, was earlier barred from running for lack of a discharge certificate covering his time in office from 2012 until late 2014. via — NationNews Barbados
