Jude Celestin, the LAPEH party presidential candidate, speaks during an interview at his office in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016. Celestin, a 53-year-old engineer, said he has such deep concerns about vote-rigging and a lack of transparency by Haiti’s Provisional Electoral Council that he is boycotting a Jan. 24 presidential runoff. His party will not send any monitors to polling stations.
