Haiti candidate won't challenge 'Sweet Micky' win

Haiti candidate won't challenge 'Sweet Micky' win

Haitian musician Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly is a step closer to becoming president as his rival says she won't contest preliminary results showing he won in a landslide.
A spokesman for the campaign of Mirlande Manigat said the former first lady will not challenge the results, despite her doubts about their veracity. Spokesman Jean-Junior Joseph said Friday that results showing Manigat with only 32 percent of the vote were wrong. He wouldn't say why the campaign does not plan to file a challenge.
Haiti's electoral council is due to announce final results on April 16.
Preliminary results showed that the pop star known as "Sweet Micky" won nearly 68 percent of the vote in the March 20 runoff.
