Prime Minister Marc Luis Bazin heading Haiti Defacto government

Prime Minister Marc Luis Bazin heading Haiti Defacto government

Here is a picture of former Haitian Prime Minister Marc Luis Bazin heading Haiti Defacto government.

While Bazin never won the presidency, he was briefly made Acting Prime Minister, under the rule of General Raoul Cedras. The public's reception of this move was not positive, and the problem that was creating such a palpable glass ceiling for Bazin was abundantly clear. Even though he was, like the masses, black, his apparent backing by the U.S. made him unfavorable. Despite his track record of not succombing to corruption, the American affiliation, and his public image as being in league with the bourgeoisie, would hold him back. Bazin settled into life as a popular journalist and commentator, but would continue again to run for president of the country.

Hospital St Nicolas, Saint-Marc Haiti

Hospital Saint Nicholas in Saint-Marc is a 300-bed facility that was badly hit by the 2010 earthquake and it has been struggling with insufficient medical professionals, equipment and supplies for a long time. In 2011, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund had granted a Fund of $1,812,220 to its sister organization Zanmi Lasante in Haiti to improve the scope and quality of the public health system in the country. The development program undertaken for Hospital Saint Nicolas will improve (a) the present doctor-patient ratio, (b) train new 18 Haitian family practice physicians, (c) retain 80 to 100 local nursing staff who will further train 1,000 health workers, and (d) increase the scope and quality of health care provided by Hospital Saint Nicholas as a referral hospital for the 1.5 million inhabitants of Artibonite region. Haiti is a country with high rates of infant mortality (58.0/1,000) where only 24% of births are attended by skilled health personnel and 523 women die for every 100,000 births and 1 in 10 children dies before the age of 5.

Candidates looking for well-paid job, according to Cardinal Langlois

Candidates looking for well-paid job, according to Cardinal Langlois

His eminence Cardinal Chibly Langlois doesn't think for a moment that all these candidates interested in the upcoming election in Haiti are for real. Last weekend, while he was in the city of Alcibiades Pommayrac to celebrate a Mass, the Haitian Cardinal announced that he has doubt that those who declared their candidacy for the upcoming election have any interest in serving the people.

According to him, these candidates are looking for a well-paid job with all the benefits associated with it.

His eminence Cardinal Chibly Langlois is not hesitant. On May 1, while celebrating a Mass in the multipurpose room of Lamandou in the city of Alcibiades Pommayrac, he has expressed his doubt over the proclaimed purpose of the candidates participating in the forthcoming election. Their interest is more about earning money than serving the nation. They are mainly looking for a well paid job with every benefit associated with it. Chibly Langlois is a Haitian cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church and the President of Haiti's Bishops' Conference. He has been the bishop of Les Cayes since August 15, 2011. On February 22, 2014, Pope Francis has elevated him to the College of Cardinals.

Fifa vice-president Jack Warner Cashing in on Haiti disaster

Fifa vice-president Jack Warner Cashing in on Haiti disaster

As the United States launches criminal proceedings against officials of world football's governing body and after Seven officials and associates were arrested in Zurich earlier this week, new we have Haiti emerging as one of Fifa's most extravagant expenses claims within the past several years.

It was reported that after the Haiti earthquake of 2010, the president of FIFA, pledged some money to Haiti. However, former Fifa vice-president Jack Warner did not think all that money should go to Haiti.

But Yves Jean-Bart, head of the Haitian Football Association, claimed only to have seen a fraction of that money reach his country. According to the head of Haitian Football Association, Yves Jean-Bart, only a small portion of that money ever reached Haiti. Among many expanses that could not be traced, Jack Warner contracted with a company in his native country of Trinidad to produce emergency supplies for Haiti in the amount of $229,000. There is one problem: that particular company never existed.

Ex-FIFA Official Embezzled $750,000 intended for Haiti Earthquake Relief

Ex-FIFA Vice President, Jack Warner, is under fire for misappropriation of funds he raised from FIFA and the Korean Football Association, a sum of $750,000.

U.S. prosecutors have been investigating him, and want him extradited from Trinidad and Tobago to answer charges of corruption and bribery in court.

He is alleged to have redirected $750,000, earmarked to help survivors from Haiti's 2010 earthquake, into his personal accounts. He claims he is innocent of all charges.

Here is a picture of Mr. Evans Paul as K-Plim, Kok-Kalite

He was born to a moderate family, spent a part of his childhood in Morne Rouge, the First Communal Section of the North Plain. He has studied communication and drama at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art, self-taught in Sociology and Political Science and he holds a certificate from Harvard. Evans Paul was a Professor of Civic Society and the Diplomatic Academy, an expert playwright and program host Konbit Pitit Kay on Radio Cacique between 1977 to 1980.

Evans Paul is an old media man, a good orator and onetime radical militant leader who has been transformed into a moderate politician. Paul, after his split with Aristide, became his strongest critic. His predecessor Laurent Lamothe was impeached and removed from his seat following the recommendations of a presidential commission of which Paul was a member. He was a part of the movement that toppled former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier in 1986. His relations with Duvalier soured when he was tipped as a potential successor as head of the state. In 1988, Evans was arrested under the military government of Prosper Avril; he was held in prison and tortured by the military along with other political activists.
