Haiti heads to the polls Sunday to choose between opposition candidate Jude Celestin and government-backed rival Jovenel Moise. The opposition has called October’s first-round vote — which saw Moise come out ahead of Celestin — an “electoral coup” set up by President Michel Martelly, who cannot run for a second consecutive term under the constitution.
