Wii he be a candidate in the next Haiti Presidential election? Can you imagine having one more Duvalier running the country of Haiti? François Nicolas Duvalier during a visit in Washington DC took the opportunity to meet several key personalities. Many people, including some of his friends, think he will run for President of Haiti in the next Presidential election that is to be taken place in 2022
In December 2013, when the news first came out that Francois Nicolas Duvalier, the son of former Haitian president Jean-Claude Duvalier and grandson of Francois Duvalier, is a possible candidate in the next Haitian election, people were skeptics of its authenticity. Recently during a visit in Washington DC in June 2018, Nicolas Duvalier met several friends and key personalities and expressed his desire to run for the president's office in the 2022 presidential election.
During in his recent trip to the United States, he talked to Voice of America and mentioned his individual vision based on republican values, his love for the country and desire to lead Haiti in a journey on development. He further added that to achieve this, he needs to hold an important responsible office with the power of a president. He believes, it is the best way to lead his countrymen towards prosperity--they have already suffered a lot.
His message has put the Lavalas in a state of panic and they announced that Nicola's candidacy for the 59th president would be nothing but an insult to the whole electoral democracy. However, history is there to judge whether it is correct to judge Nicolas by his ancestors' performance. Time will tell who was more dangerous for the country, the Duvalier dictatorship or Lavalas tyrannies.
After the fall of Duvaliers, during the 20 years of the Lavalas regime (1991 to 2011), their policy of "growth with equity" destroyed everything that Duvalier had left behind and Lavalas pushed the country 50 years back. The Duvaliers were never the only to have a past.
Nicolas was born in Haiti in 1986. When he was three years old, his family took exile in France. He came to Haiti in 2011, two months after the return of his late father. Since his return, he keeps himself busy with social work and agricultural projects. During the reign of Haitian President Michel Martelly, there was once a rumor that Nicholas was an advisor and consultant to President Martelly. He is presently a member of a new political party named "Patrayil". Nicolas has really an enormous task to prove that he has much better intention than his father.
