Article 134-2 makes the new president start immediately after a late election. It juggles the schedule to accommodate this. But in Jovenel Moïse’s case, the amendment was ignored. He wasn’t allowed to start immediately after his election. Out goes Article 134-2, both substance and scheduling

ARTICLE 134-1. The term of the President is five (5) years. Jovenel Moïse was inaugurated in February 2017. He didn’t begin when the election was certified, as per Article 134-2 as amended, so the scheduling in that amendment is also out.
