Jean Bertrand Aristide and Maryse Narcisse campaigning
Jean Bertrand Aristide and Maryse Narcisse - last day of campaigning.
October 23, 2015, was the last day of campaigning for the first round of the presidential election. The former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who is still a popular and decisive figure to many, came out of his home and drove along the streets of the capital city standing alongside Dr. (Mrs.) Maryse Narcisse, the leader of the Fanmi Lavalas faction and a candidate for the Presidential election from the party 'Fanmi Lavalas' that Aristide founded decades ago in 1996. The former President and the presidential candidate Narcisse waved to thousands through the sunroof of the car till it reached a huge seaside slum, Cite Soleil, once a stronghold of Aristide.
