The World : Candidates Vetoed, Haiti Offices Burned

November 04, 1987

Fire gutted the offices of Haiti's Provisional Electoral Council shortly after it rejected the candidacies of 12 presidential hopefuls, several of whom had ties to the former Duvalier dictatorship. A fire also destroyed the department store of a council member, and shots were reportedly fired at the office of an anti-Duvalier candidate, at the house and car of a member of the Constituent Assembly and at an election council office in nearby Delmas. A guard at the council office was wounded.
