PORT-AU-PRINCE — A second-round vote to choose Haiti's president will not be possible until late February, after the constitutional end of current President Rene Preval's term, an electoral council spokesman said Tuesday.

The two-candidate runoff is supposed to be held Jan. 16. But results have not been finalized from the Nov. 28 first round that was criticized for low turnout, disorganization, fraud, violence and voter intimidation.
