Businessman Moise wins Haiti election in first round!
Moise won 55.67 percent of the vote in the November 20th election.
His closest rival, Jude Celestin, polled 19.52 percent.
12 percent of the voting slips were set aside because of irregularities and were not included in the count, the council said.
Who is Moise Jovenel?
He was the chosen successor to former President Michel Martelly, a singer.
A political unknown before last year, Moise also came first in the October 2015 vote.
The result triggered protests and claims of fraud from opponents.
The 48-year-old is a successful businessman, running a banana export company he sees as a model for rural development.
