Even as the Electoral Council fiasco threatens his government, and others legislate a disastrous prohibition against plastic containers – with no thought as to what will replace them- The Senate moved to pillory Sophia and Olivier Martelly for their handling of Haitian governmental funds. Neither has any official position, but each controls millions, and millions of dollars.
Sophia is seen , by many, as the biggest danger to Haiti’s progress as she controls all of the dossiers concerning development.
Many insiders suggest she demands cash on the table – for her own account – in order to consider any project.
The Senate move is the first shot in a war with Martelly, after his grab for control of the Electoral Council. He effectively controls 6 of the 9 seats, guaranteeing criminal control of the electoral process…in line with Preval’s plan.
Food costs and a disastrous school opening may well topple the Martelly government.
