Senate elections were held in Haiti with a first round on 20 November 2016, and a second on 29 January 2017.[1] The first round were held simultaneously with the presidential elections and the second round of the parliamentary elections that still had a run-off pending in some constituencies since 2015.

On 10 August 2016 authorities published the list of candidates for the renewal for a third of the Senate.[2]

Originally scheduled for 9 October, the elections were postponed until 20 November 2016 because of Hurricane Matthew, and a new date announced.[3][4]

Results[edit]

Two candidates were elected in the first round of the elections as they obtained an absolute majority or a difference or more than 25% over their immediate runner-up: Wanique Pierre (PHTK) in the Nord-Est constituency and Joseph Lambert (KONA) in the Sud-Est constituency. The other 8 remaining constituencies had a run-off to decide the senators elected.[5] Preliminary results were published on 3 February. The final results will be available after a two-week challenge period and the handling of possible cases.[6]
