Aristide Supports Lavalas Candidate Narcisse.
Hordes of excited Haitians streamed alongside the campaign vehicle of Maryse Narcisse, riding with former President Aristide in a parade to mark the end of her campaign for president. Narcisse is running under Aristide's Fanmi Lavalas, one of 56 candidates vying for the top job.
Most of the crowd was from slum Cite Soleil and are Lavalas supporters, one of whom says "It's the party that knows the pain of the Haitian people."
Toward the creation of a Verification Commission in Haiti.
On Monday, April 11, 2016, the Interim President Jocelerme Privert sent letters to all political parties, whether represented in the Parliament or not, to discuss the establishment of an Electoral Verification Commission. The discussion would start from April 12, 2016, as per the terms of the Commission as mentioned before. The Head of the State has said, it is his obligation to define the role of the Commission based on the consensus of all involved stakeholders to avoid all future crises. We might remember that in last month, even the Haitian Human Rights Leaders, composing coalition of RNDDH, CNO, CONHANE and SOFA, had recommended the necessity of a verification process to uphold Haitians' right to vote and to avoid a major political and electoral crisis.

The inauguration ceremony of former Senator Jocelerme Privert as the Provisional President at the National Palace on February 14, 2016 was attended by many personalities from the political and diplomatic worlds. Many noted business personalities and political allies like Jean Charles Moise, Mathias Pierre, US Ambassador Peter F. Mulrean, head of the PNH, and some hardcore oppositions of Martelly like Dr. (Mrs.) Maryse Narcisse (presidential candidate of Fanmi Lavalas) and former First Lady Mildred Trouillot Aristide (wife of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a rare political appearance) were seen among the witness of Privert's investiture. Prime Minister Evans Paul was seen among the attendees, watching as an onlooker in a marginalized manner. Could this be a message to the Martelly aids that they have no place in the Privert's administration? Privert will pick Haiti's next Prime Minister, in consultation with the Speakers of the House and Senate.

Dr. Narcisse is a former Minister of Public Health and a former employee of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Earlier, to this on September 30, 2015, the former President Aristide spoke before an audience of 2,000 supporters who gathered outside his house. He urged them to support his candidate Dr. Maryse Narcisse. That was the first occasion for him to speak in public since his return from exile in 2011.
October 25 is a day for the first round of presidential elections and it is also the day for the second round of its legislative and municipal elections. The Interim Electoral Council (CEP i.e., Conseil Electoral Provisoire) responsible for holding Haiti election, financed by the international community via the United Nations, has billed more than $50 million for holding the election, but most Haitians consider it as a corrupt institution.
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.

On Wednesday, September 30, outside the residence of the twice-ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, thousands of Fanmi Lavalas party supporters were chanting, singing and waving photos of Aristide and music blared from loud speakers while they were waiting eagerly to listen few words of their favorite leader. In the early evening Aristide appeared with Maryse Narcisse outside his walled property. Standing on the back of a pickup truck alongside Narcisse, he delivered a seven minute speech before his 2,000 odd supporters and that prompted loud cheers and applause. He criticized the role of the present electoral authority and described their process of conducting an election is rather a mere process of 'selection'. He called on his supporters to ensure that the party chief, Maryse Narcisse wins the election and becomes the President of the nation.
Dr. Maryse Narcisse holds an impressive resume as an advocate for health care and human rights for Haiti's poor majority. Following the ousting and exile of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on Feb. 29, 2004 and after Maryse's return to Haiti in October 2007, she was once , taken at gunpoint in the front of her home as she was the second high-profile figure of the Lavalas movement, supporter of Aristide. After Aristide's exile in 2004, she became the personal spokesperson for President Aristide and was instrumental in creating an international voice for the Lavalas movement. Dr. Narcisse was appointed as the director of the Aristide Foundation for Democracy and she took several trips to meet Aristide in South Africa and acted as his official spokesperson in Haiti. She also serves on a five-member Executive Committee for Fanmi Lavalas.

On Friday, August 21st, Dr. Maryse Narcisse the presidential candidate from 'Fanmi Lavalas Party' was welcomed by a delegation at the Fort Lauderdale Airport before her 48 hour visit to meet and interact with people in South Florida. During her visit in Miami, Dr. Narcisse was accompanied by the Senator of Northeast, Jean-Baptiste Bien-Aimé and Lesly Voltaire, former Minister under the governments of Aristide. This medical doctor turned politician is perhaps one of the smartest people running for the presidential election who has seen how the country has been ruined by politicians over the past 4 decades. She left her thriving medical practice to join politics. People love her for her charming and humble personality and because of her status as a healthcare professional, she knows well how to get well acquainted and accepted in every section of the society, especially in rallies among common people, professionals, religious societies, businesses and other politicians.

Since the publication of the electoral timetable by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) on March 26, 2015, for holding the long overdue legislative and municipal elections, several opposition political parties continue to express their disagreement. The Organization of People in Struggle (OPL) has denounced the announcement as their suggestions were not taken into account. Maryse Narcisse, the coordinator of the Fanmi Lavalas Executive Committee rejected the electoral timetable proposal on the plea that it is not based on reality. Similarly, Charles Henry Baker, the President of "Respè" Party also has denounced the CEP announcement as unimportant and partisan maneuvering.
