Many Haitians in BK watching the Haitian presidential elections

Haitians living in Brooklyn are closely watching their nation's latest round of presidential elections after the last round in November was ruled fraudulent.

Many residents say that they are watching the elections online since most news outlets in America aren't covering the elections.

After the last round, many say they are skeptical about the legitimacy of the election.

The election is between Haitian musician Michael Martelly and former first lady Mirlande Manigat. Former Brooklyn resident Wyclef Jean had petitioned to be included in last election but was ruled ineligible.
