Leopold Berlanger getting ready to hold next election

Leopold Berlanger getting ready to hold next election

Here is a picture of the president of the CEP, Leopold Berlanger as he is getting ready to hold next Haiti election

On June 6, 2016, the Chairman of the election committee (CEP) Leopold Berlanger has invalidated last year's presidential elections and has announced in a press conference that the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) will hold a fresh election in next October 9, 2016, and January 8, 2017. The Provisional Electoral Council will work under the advice of the Verification Commission, which in last May recommended annulling the published results of the last presidential election and making preparation for a new election. The CEP has to make arrangements for legislative elections for some centers also which remained pending in some parts of the country. Leopold Berlanger said, his commission is presently working to resolve issues with "Mandataires" or poll watchers who were responsible for massive frauds. In the last election, over 1 million blank accreditation cards were issued as "Mandataires" and that allowed them to cast multiple ballots at polling stations in such a way so that it was impossible to determine the number of voters who went to the polls.

Bill Clinton traveling in Haiti

Bill Clinton traveling in Haiti

Here is a picture of bill Clinton in Haiti holding the hand of a child as they are entering a home

Haiti holds a special place in the hearts of Bill and Hillary Clinton. When they were married in 1975, one of their friends presented a honeymoon vacation in Haiti for them and it was an eye opening journey. Once in an interview Bill Clinton said Hillary and I share the same memories, same concerns and we both love the place and always feel a special responsibility for Haiti and its people. The Clinton Foundation alone has directed $36 million to Haiti since 2010. Another $55 million has been spent through the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. Clinton Foundation led the Haitian reconstruction effort following the devastating earthquake and vowed to help the country "build back better," so that if any disaster struck the country, it can respond in a more efficient and quicker way. In 2009, Clinton visited Haiti when places around Gonaives, were devastated by hurricane damage in 2008. Since the 2010 earthquake Clinton had visited Haiti a number of times to oversee his foundation's work and the reconstruction effort carried on by several other organizations. In May 2010, during his first joint trip with George Bush, it was noticed that George W. Bush wiped his hand on Bill Clinton's shirt after shaking hands with a crowd of Haitians.

Here is a picture of Cardinal Chibly Langlois with Provisional President Jocelerme Privert

In an exclusive interview with Le Nouvelliste on Monday night, July 25, 2016, Cardinal Chibly Langlois called on parliamentarians to choose "the lesser evil". As per Cardinal Chilby, Jocelerme Privert may not be the ideal person to lead the country, but the critical issues that the country is currently passing through such as holding of elections on the date set by the CEP and downward revision of the budget--- we have no better option than President Privert on whom we can depend. We should maintain him as the Provisional President as he is "lesser evil" than his peers who are busier to defend their own interest.

Jonas Coffy accused Evans Paul for destabilizing the government

Jonas Coffy accused Former P. M. Evans Paul as being behind recent increase in insecurity in Haiti. "Was it not the weakness of the Haitian justice, a citizen like Evans Paul would have been behind bars a long time ago", said the Director of the Ministry Social Affairs Jonas Coffy reacting about PM's coded statement
"konpoze or dekonpoze"

On Sunday, July 26, 2016, Jonas Coffy, the spokesman of Jocelerme Privert and the Director of the Ministry Social Affairs, on a program on "public interest" in Radio Kiskeya has accused former Prime Minister Evans Paul for his role behind the rising insecurity in the country and destabilizing the government. He has also accused the former Prime Minister for misappropriating public funds during his tenure as the Prime Minister. As per Coffy, it is a shame that our judicial system is so weak that it cannot keep people like Evans Paul behind the bars. Mr. Coffy was reacting to recent comments made by Evans Paul specifically his statement: "konpoze or dekonpoze" or "composed or decomposed" which many people believe to be a coded messages for promoting public violence. Evans Paul has described Coffy's accusation as, ridiculous and fanciful. He is considering filing a defamation suit against Coffy.
