No violence as Haiti holds elections
Haiti holds:Some 15,000 policemen and United Nations peacekeeping force members were deployed to prevent any incidents.
Haitians were choosing from more than 50 candidates to succeed President Michel Martelly.
They were also electing members of the Congress, which was dissolved in January amid a political crisis.
Results are not expected to be known until next month.
Turnout was high across Haiti, despite the failure of the 9 August vote.
Only a few candidates were officially elected then. New polls had be held in a number of constituencies.
‘Going really well’
“On August 9, I had left home to go vote, but I saw people pushing each other around, people causing mayhem and throwing things,” 26-year-old voter Franzty Jeudi told the AFP news agency in the capital, Port-au-Prince.
“Today, it’s going really well. I came to vote with my parents and we are at ease,” he said earlier on Sunday.
President Michel Martelly is not allowed to seek re-election.
But his chosen candidate, Jovenel Moise, is among the favourites.
Mr Moise, who owns a banana exporting business, is expected to face Jude Celestin, a Swiss-educated mechanical engineer, in a run-off vote on 27 December.
Whoever wins will face a daunting task when taking over from Mr Martelly in February.
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Americas.
Since it was devastated by an earthquake in 2010, it has relied largely on international donations and foreign aid from the United States and other countries.
