According to Reuters News Agency, Max Mathurin, President of the electoral council, acknowledged publicly for the first time that the February 7 elections were tainted with fraud while Jose Miguel Insulza insists the votes were properly counted, and despite some reports, there should be no talk about fraud and nobody can prove there were irregularities.
Despite all the evidences pointing to the contrary, the international community never admitted the elections were tainted with fraud. They sidestep the issues completely by not calling for a recount of all the votes.

Brian Concannon has more on how their decisions will impact the presidency of Rene Preval.
