Today’s publication in Haiti of the final presidential results represents a positive step for the full restoration of that nation’s democratic institutions.

We congratulate President-elect Jovenel Moïse on his first-round victory and look forward to working closely with him as we strengthen our longstanding partnership with Haiti. We urge all actors to accept the final results, refrain from violence, and work together to build a stable and prosperous Haiti.

The United States reiterates its support for timely completion of the remaining elections in Haiti in a fair, transparent, and peaceful manner.
