The World

December 30, 1987

Six officials from the ousted Duvalier regime have registered to run in Haiti's Jan. 17 presidential election, a judicial official said. The election replaces one in November that was canceled by violence that took 34 lives. An independent Electoral Council barred Duvalierists in that vote. However, the new council, appointed by the military-led government, has said it will probably not disqualify any candidates. The six Duvalierists are Clovis Desinor, Claude Raymond, Alphonse Lahens, Edouard Francisque, Jean Julme and Lesage Chery. Two other registered contenders are Gregoire Eugene and Dieuveuil Joseph.
