US may support disposing results of disputed Haitian vote
By Bradley Klapper,
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration could support throwing out the results of Haiti's contested first-round presidential vote if the Organization of American States proposes that step.

Cheryl Mills, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's chief of staff, says the U.S. is waiting for the results of OAS' review of the Nov. 28 vote.

Mills told reporters Friday that the U.S. will consider any steps deemed necessary by the expert panel, including canceling the vote and setting up new elections. However, she avoided a question about the possibility of Haitian President Rene Preval staying on beyond his five-year term.

A runoff is scheduled Jan. 16 between the top two candidates, but the first-round results have not been certified. That vote was criticized for low turnout, disorganization, fraud, violence and voter intimidation.
