Two-faced Democracy in Haiti

ImageThe Haiti Information Project recently published a short article reporting that the Provisional Election Council (CEP) had allowed the Fanmi Lavalas party to register to run in elections scheduled for early 2010. According to reliable sources an original document requested by the CEP and signed by Aristide was delivered to the offices of the council shortly after 1:00 pm on November 23. There was no indication on the part of the CEP or the Fanmi Lavalas party that anything was amiss in the process and it appeared a fait accompli.

Three days later the CEP would publish the names of those political parties allowed to participate in the elections and the Fanmi Lavalas party did not appear on the list. The CEP now clings to the same flimsy excuses it used to exclude Lavalas in the Senatorial race. The party did not meet all the legal requirements to register followed by incoherent legal opinions masking their true political intent.

What of the silence of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Haiti today? While the OAS takes a principled position on not recognizing bogus elections sponsored by the coup regime in Honduras their silence is deafening concerning the CEPĀ  in Haiti. Where are the OAS lectures to the Preval administration about the necessities of democratic inclusion and free elections in the hemisphere?

All of this begs the question, what does the US and the international community have to fear that they would not condemn Preval and his handpicked CEP for excluding them from the political process? It must preoccupy them greatly that after three years of hellish repression, thousands killed, arrested or forced into exile, that the polls would expose their ultimate justification for Aristide’s removal and United Nations forces occupying Haiti.

  1. It seems like the author is hinting that the UN farces that are in Haiti are involved in the corruption.

  2. Of course, we have a brand new system of democracy in Haiti Today.

    Of course yes, we do have it.

    But,how does it work?

    It works for good and perfectly well.

    For who?

    Don’t even ask?

    I say, it does work.

    It works for:

    Kidnappers, Corrupted guys in the Government and all Preval national and international supporters, included …. You know all about.

    Except, Haiti will never be a good place for right people to live any more.Thye are building a Hell there to discourage other black nations all over the world.

    They are doing that as an answer to Barack Obama as the first black president of the USA.Period.

    Because, Toussaint Louverture was the first black and Napoleon the first white, Do you remember what happened to Toussaint Louverture?

    Because, Barack Obama is the first black president in the US,he will be resposible for the genocide of the first black Independent nation in the world.

    So, do you see? the answer is very clear and very simple.


  3. Chomsky doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground. He has caused more problems in the Third World with his stupid, outdated concepts.

    1. I agree completely. The only reason why anyone listens to this arrogant windbag Chomsky is because he has spent a career being overpayed to spend his time misinforming folks at an Ivy League University. I guess this makes folks think he knows what he is talking about, but one should be hesitant to believe his thoughts could be anything close to reality.

      He has the liberal media eating out of his hand- likely because they don’t have a clue either, and will print any garbage that the icon of their asskissing feeds them, especially if it comes along with a cheque for “publishing fees”. This is common practice, and is also the reason why the Liberal media promoted Aristide. The same pay-for-positive coverage-scheme. Fools promoted a mass murderer.

      He is a windbag, and a completely ill-informed one. Good thing he is nearing retirement- hopefully he will shut his mouth and feed his ego some other way.
