The Organisation of American States has voiced its support of Haiti's electoral council to declare Rene Preval the winner of the country's presidential elections.
Officials in Haiti reached an agreement to declare Mr Preval president, after a vote marred by claims of irregularities.
The announcement was made after urgent talks between government and electoral officials.
Mr Preval won 51.15 per cent of the votes. Under the reported final agreement, some of the blank ballots were subtracted from the total number of votes counted. This took the new leader over the 50 per cent threshold.
Haiti was also due to choose a 129-member parliament.
But the Preval Presidency has drawn mixed reactions from Haitians. His supporters, mostly from the poor and working class spent a night of jubilation around the Presidential Palace, waiting for the proclamation of their candidate's victory. Mr Preval himself enjoyed his triumph in his native land, Marmalade, by rejoicing in the applause of his close relations and members of his political platform.
But election runner-up Leslie Manigat claimed that Rene Preval imposed his victory in Haiti's presidential election. Manigat is credited with approximately 12 per cent of the votes.
However Haitian provisional authorities led by Prime Minister Gerard Latortue voiced great satisfaction in succeeding in getting the country out of a very difficult situation.
The President's Cabinet director, Michel Brunache, considers the accession of Prval to the presidency, an historic day.

A little History of Haiti
Haitians has been a victim of itself and of the international community. The struggle goes back from the moment Haiti become the first Black Nation in the Western Hemisphere to gain their independence by defeating the mighty Napoleon Army in 1804. The supper powers mainly the United States, Germany, French etc..., in their races views felt threathen that the success of the Haitians would prove them wrong that Black can govern themself. They felt that it would start a cascade of event in which other Slave Colonies would revolve. Needless to say they have done everything possible to cripple Haiti. That has not been the only reason why Haiti is in the situation today but it certainly has a lot to do with it. To see Preval win this election give me hope that things will change one day. I am hoping that the Haitians themselves could United and focus on rebuilding Haiti.

GOOD FOR YOU*****
I'm happy that the election finally was held; and that it was a peaceful one too. I hope that president Preval will shine some light on Haiti. Enough is enough. Don't they think that they have taken everything from us. Why so much cruelty. Does it really make them feel good to see other human being suffer. Someone hold me down!!!!!!! my country (Jamaica)is rich in some ways and is poor in other ways; but it doesn't prevent me from feeling happy for another struggling neighbor as well.
