    Aristide ally appears close to victory

    The Guardian reports on the Haitian elections. Perhaps justice will be done after all, and the man who was ousted, in part by US meddling, will maybe return to a position of power once again:

    Early returns indicated that Mr Preval, a former president and prime minister, was on 61% with his nearest rival, Leslie Manigat, on 15%. Charlito Baker, a rightwing businessman who has waged the most aggressively anti-Preval campaign, had around 5% of the vote. There are 32 candidates, and Mr Preval has to win more than 50% of the total votes in order to avoid a run-off on March 19. A clear result is expected at the weekend.
