Officials have published final results that show a popular singer won Haiti’s presidential elections.
The announcement confirms that Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly won the run-off for the election with 67.57% of the vote.
When preliminary results released on April 4 showed he defeated his rival in the March 20 run-off, opponent Mirlande Manigat said she would not contest.
The 50-year-old Mr Martelly begins his term on May 14. He will be in charge of leading reconstruction efforts in Haiti, which was devastated by an earthquake last year.
