Here’s a guy who was actually listed way down on the BRIDE polls, and the more realistic ones. When the Group of 12 was meeting at the Hotel Caraibe, to contest the election, Preval called Martelly, and Manigat to tell them they were at the top of the vote. Martelly and Manigat then deserted their other opposition candidates and took to the streets, claiming victory. This effectively saved Preval who was already packed to leave.
Martelly is demonstrating his complete and total lack of respect for the Democratic Process by putting his terrorists on the streets to destroy people’s business, creating more hardship in a nation that is battling the effects of an earthquake and now a cholera epidemic.
Many people will die from cholera because of Martelly’s selfishness.
And the people he is putting on the streets are just young kids who are too young to vote. They are there for what Martelly pays them and for what they can steal. Last round saw Martelly’s young people loot a bunch of businesses around Petionville.
Martelly made a great deal of money in the cocaine business and some useful person in the American embassy should publish his DEA dossier to put and end to this foolishness. Preval is probably paying him for this violence.
