Haiti preliminary results of presidential election, not ready yet to be divulged to nation

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Haitians will have to wait a few more days to learn the preliminary results of their presidential election.

An official with Haiti's electoral council says preliminary results will be postponed to give poll workers more time to count ballots. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not yet been made public.

The preliminary results will now be released Monday. They had been scheduled for release Thursday.

The official said Tuesday said that more ballots had come in than originally anticipated.

In the presidential race, former first lady and Senator Mirlande Manigat faced musician Michel Martelly, who is known as "Sweet Micky."
