Haiti’s president Rene Preval has issued orders that the country’s nine-member provisional electoral council should organise elections for November 28th.
The presidential and legislative elections to be held on the day will signal the end of Preval’s five-year presidential term, which actually ends on February 7th.
The Haitian parliament has voted to allow him to remain in office until May 14th should a successor not be chosen by February.
Preval has been late in announcing the election date due to struggles the country is going through to rebuild itself after the devastating earthquake that struck in January.
Many people in Haiti are known to be against elections in conditions where over a million people have been displaced by the quake, but the international community has been pressing Preval.
Accusations of fraud and disinterest marred Haiti’s last elections in 2009.
Who are the people against an election in November??
They are people who have three meals a day.
The massive majority of Haiti’s 9,000,000 hate Rene Preval and have absolutely no respect for n his government and its ongoing criminality.
They did not vote for Preval in 2006!! He had 23% when MINUSTAH’s Brazil and Chile, in combination with Rene Momplaisir, gave Preval 51% in order to avoid a run-off. The other candidates were not consulted…the American, Canadian, French embassies were not consulted.
The nation was presented with an unconstitutional fait accompli.
The massive majority has lost faith in the Democratic Process since their vote does not seem to count. Big Brother decides who they should have, even when they vote against the selection.
This is the last chance for the Democratic Process!!
A new CEP and a really fair vote must be the result of the present ongoing process.
Preval and his fellow criminals must go……one way or another.
