Moise Jean-Charles accused Evans Paul in gas station fire

June 10, 2016 - Moise Jean-Charles holds Evans Paul personally responsible for attacks and attempted arson on several gas stations in Port-au-Prince. Moise informed the press that he knows very well what Evans Paul is capable of, consideration his past as former militant "Konpè Plim".

On June 14, 2016, the Haitian Tet Kale Party (PHTK) of former President Martelly and its allies formed a "general mobilization" force with the aim of overthrowing Provisional President Jocelerme Privert from power. The alliance calls themselves Entente Democratic (ED), or Democratic Agreement. Some of the participants of this political coalition include: the KID, the PHTK, the National Consortium of political Parties Haitians, "Repon Peyizan" of "Platfom Viktwa", the National Bloc Right Centre, MONHA. They have invited the general population to take part against the authoritarian and autocratic excesses of the Provisional President Privert and asked the politicians, state institutions and all organized bodies to join a concerted effort for a consensual solution to fill the presidential vacancy.

Evans Paul has said that continuation of Privert as the Interim President without any title or quality is against the law of the country and a matter of criminal offence. The three branches of government, such as, Executive, Legislative and Judiciary, should meet immediately to bring back the country onto the rail of the constitution.

Here is Muhammad Ali and Christina Aguilera asking for donation of $5 for Haiti relief effort

During the program with Christina Aguilera, Muhammad Ali had mentioned such earthquake and aftershocks in Haiti as among the worst tragedies of our lifetime. Christina Aguilera serves as the global spokesperson for Yum! Brands' World Hunger Relief campaign, which is the world's largest private-sector hunger-relief effort, operating in 110 countries and 36,000 restaurants of KFC, Pizza Hut, Long John Silver's, Taco Bell and A&W. The organization creates awareness, volunteers and raises fund for WFP. Aguilera said, as a mother, she was very much upset by watching the condition of children and families affected by the earthquake. David Novak, the Chairman and CEO, Yum! Brands, Inc., said, "as a company with a huge heart, it is their responsibility to help the people of Haiti rebuild their lives." He announced his company's decision to donate $500,000 for the Earthquake victims. We might remember that, in 2008, after four devastating hurricane attacks in the country, Novak visited Haiti and immediately pledged $1 million from that year's World Hunger Relief collection to Haiti.

Roudy Stanley

Roudy Stanley

Here is a picture of Roudy Stanley Penn who resigned as Spoke person for the CEP.

Roudy was one of the spokespersons for the new CEP under Leopold Berlanger Jr. After several announcements, finally he has resigned from his post on July 22nd, because so far, Leopold Berlanger did not him want to leave. To him, winning an election in Haiti is always the result of a master plan built by a strong team of professionals of politics and communication. Some of the fifty five presidential candidates in the last election were more presidential than others, whether through their journey, their reputation or commitment. Despite having these advantages, none of these popular candidates were able to fetch individually more than 20% votes in the first round of elections, because they are more renowned than they have supporters--basically they are all equal. Roudy was also the campaign manager for Senator Jean Renel Senatus (Zokiki), who was elected in the first round of voting. He is also the vice President of the Association of Haitian Political Consultants. The title of a published book of Roudy speaks itself about its content--"Advocacy for Lowering the Age of Eligibility and Appointment to Political Office". He had argued that if we can vote at the age of 18, we can also be a candidate at this age.
