Delayed Haiti elections to take place November 20: official

Haiti is due to hold long-delayed presidential and legislative elections on November 20, followed by a second round on January 29, the provisional electoral council said Friday.

Haitians had been due to head to the polls last week, but the vote was postponed due to the havoc caused by deadly Hurricane Matthew.

The impoverished Caribbean nation's last elections, in 2015, were canceled amid violence and massive fraud, leaving the country stranded in political limbo ever since.
