About 20 candidates have registered for Haiti's presidential election, which is set for November.
Hundreds of people gathered outside the electoral council in the capital Port-au-Prince, to cheer on candidates just hours before the registration deadline on Saturday.
But many analysts question whether Haiti is ready to hold the vote after January's devastating earthquake that left more than a million people in makeshift camps and without IDs.
Some fear the election could throw the island nation into a political crisis, citing lack of poll transparency and voting fraud.
