President Rene Preval, and his supporters, have busied themselves with a number of false polls, showing Mirlande Manigat as a front-runner in the electoral campaign. In actual fact, Manigat, like her husband before her, has popularity is single percentile digits. Preval is playing a game that could see him – and his CEP – fix the vote to have a Manigat/Baker run-off in which Manigat wins.
Preval’s man, Celestin, would poll a few percentage points, allowing Preval to claim the election was a fair one. He will then control parliament, the cabinet and Manigat after the election.
The true poll shows Jean-Henry Ceant with somewhere between 45 and 50 percent, over the past 4 weeks.
Because of this reality, Preval, and people like Senator Lambert, who will surely face justice with a free and fair election, will go the limit to stop the process, or kill the opposition.
Ceant’s team is expecting 100,000 people at the $ P.M. Friday rally in Tabarre, Aristide’s old stamping grounds.
Do not be surprised if there is violence.
Preval has nothing to lose, at this point in time – EXCEPT EVERYTHING!!!
