Caracas, July 28, 2015 (venezuelanalysis.com) – Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (CNE) signed a memorandum of understanding with its Haitian counterpart on Friday as part of an effort to deepen cooperation between the two electoral institutions in technical assistance and training.
The agreement was signed as part of the first meeting of the Tripartite Commission, which was created by the Venezuelan, Haitian, and US governments in order to assist Haitian authorities in preparing for upcoming general elections.
Meeting with CNE president Tibisay Lucena at the National Palace in Port-au-Prince, the president of Haiti’s Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), Pierre Louis Opont, praised the accord as a pivotal step in bringing electronic voting to Haiti.
“Venezuela is an actor and a key partner in relation to the technical nature of their processes and their compared mastery of electronic voting [...] through this collaboration, we [will] try step by step to improve the knowledge of the CEP before reaching electronic voting.”
Opont also noted that the agreement is the outcome of a “long process” dating back to 2010 when Venezuela provided Haiti with computers and advisors for the Caribbean nation’s general election held that year.
Venezuela’s CNE, which posseses an electoral system described by former US president Jimmy Carter as “the best in the world”, has long been committed to assisting its neighbors in strengthening their electoral sovereignty.
“In a spirit of solidarity, our cooperation with Haiti seeks to help create the conditions for electoral processes and safeguards to be ever more in the hands of Haitians,” explains George Azariah-Moreno of the CNE’s International Relations Office, who took part in a UNASUR electoral monitoring mission to Suriname led by CNE president Lucena in May.
As outlined in the memorandum, Venezuela will provide Haiti with comprehensive assistance in diverse areas, including voter registration, automated biometric authentication, the elaboration of electoral materials, among others.
Haiti, like many countries of the global South, has historically exercised very limited control over its own electoral processes, a condition which this agreement aims to overcome.
“Previously, even the official results of elections were announced by external agencies, with elections conducted and supervised in a piecemeal fashion by different international bodies,” Azariah-Moreno told VA.
Under the governments of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela has become one of Haiti’s key allies in the region, providing low cost oil to the Caribbean nation through PetroCaribe agreements as well as assisting in post-earthquake reconstruction and development.

My God, what are these people – especially the Americans, thinking of?

The Haitian peasant has enough problems comprehending today’s simple reality, without being dragged into something where we discuss biometric control, bytes, electronic voting, and all that garbage.

Electronic voting will simply lead to a corruption of the already corrupt voting system.

At the moment, we have competition, amongst various power groups, to control the President of the CEP, CEP members, the Director General and all of the other units involved.

For example, people say Opont belongs to Dr. Boulos!  And this seems completely normal in Haiti!

Aristide recognized the value of the CEP and controlled it – completely. When CEP President Manus refused to validate a criminally flawed result, in 2000, he had to be smuggled out of the country because Aristide was going to kill him.

Aristide then published his own results, something like 99%.

Manus died in exile recently.

Today’s CEP President Opont recently admitted that he has issued a fraudulent election report, in 2009. He should have been fired – INSTANTLY by Martelly.

Instead, he remains in place and will fix the vote for Martelly. Simple as that.

Many do not recognize the Political, Cultural and Economic Coup that will be completed, with the Parliamentary Elections of August. The Senators and Deputies will appoint a Prime Minister.

HOW ABOUT PREVAL FOR PM??

and then move to re-write the Constitution, deleting the President’s existence, create a new CEP/Electoral Law and have a General Election for the rest of Haiti’s team.

This will finish Haiti for good.

It will really be a FAILED NATION with the help of our friends.

Haitians Traditional Society is only interested in the Presidential vote. They may not turn out in substantial numbers – leaving the game in Martelly’s hands.

We have to crawl, before we can walk.

All of this baloney about electronic elections should be filed in the garbage can and anyone suggesting it should be shot!!

    Involving the VZ electoral machine, known for producing “desired” results-(see Capriles vs Maduro 2013), in the upcoming Haitian electoral process, is about the most dangerous thing that could happen right now. Whomever is behind the increasing VZ involvement in upcoming elections/balloting probably will seize the day.
