IT IS TIME FOR MARTELLY TO MAKE HIS POSITION CLEAR
May 31, 2011
Preval is still doing his best to screw up the Martelly presidency. His INITE team is trying to force its way into key cabinet positions. If this happens, Martelly must fail and Preval/Aristide will once again become a greater threat.
Martelly must use a very simple approach.
Haitians, you gave me an overwhelming mandate with more than 80% of the vote. The CEP reduced this to 60% so as not to embarrass Mirlande Manigat needlessly.
However, Rene Preval, and his INITE associates are doing their best to block my creation or YOUR government. Instead of allowing me to present a Prime Minister, of my choice, backed by a Cabinet, of my choice, Preval and INITE are doing their best to make things impossible.
If Preval and INITE are allowed to continue along this obstructive path, I will be unable to deliver on the promises I made during my campaign.
I am your government.
You are the ones who gave me an overwhelming mandate.
I ask you now….Are you going to allow a few Deputies and Senators derail me thrust for law-and-order, my effort to give each child an adequate education, my efforts to stabilize your economy so that we will have investment and tourism.
I know what your answer is.
Make the world hear your wishes.
Make the elected representatives know what you expect of them and this does not include payments of $50,000 each to vote yes on an issue.
This is the time to draw the line.
