On Thursday, April 28, 2016, Kenneth Merten, the Special Coordinator for Haiti and Peter Mulrean, the US Ambassador to Haiti, visited the Haitian Senate to assess the situation of the 2015 electoral process and ensure the installation of a democratically elected government in Haiti. They were on a mission in Haiti to exert pressure on the Haitian Senators and Deputies to stop the creation of an independent verification commission as per interim president Jocelerme Privert's plan and accept the election result which the majority of Haitians consider was marred by fraud. However, Privert did not bow down to the U.S pressure. He installed the Independent Commission for Electoral Evaluation and Verification (CIEVE) with the objectives of reviewing the previous election process with published results and to decide accordingly whether to move ahead with the unfinished election. In the meantime, such Commission has submitted its report on May 30, 2016, audited by a five-member panel. In its report, the Commission has recommended rejecting the disputed results of last year's first-round presidential election as it appears to be tainted by massive fraud and re-start the election from the beginning again. As per Francois Benoit, the leader of the CIEVE, it appeared that electoral fraud was masterminded at a "high level."
Here is a picture surrendering the proble of citizenship faced by President Michel Martelly. US Ambassador Kenneth Merten declaring Michel Martelly a Haitian citizen.
When in March 2012, the snowball rumor about Michel Martelly's nationality transformed into an avalanche, destroying his credibility to hold the president's office, then-U.S. Ambassador to Haiti Kenneth Merten (August 25, 2009 - July 20, 2012 ) came to his rescue. Merten said Mr. Martelly is not an American citizen and he does not have a U.S. passport. However, the Haitian legislature was not satisfied with that explanation. About one year ago in early 2011, a bogus U.S. passport was surfaced on the Internet that purported to be Michel Martelly's. Marten's assurances could not impress the members of a special commission of the Haitian Senate responsible to investigate politicians who hold dual citizenship. However, Martelly termed this citizenship controversy initiated by Senator Jean-Charles as "conspiracy", organized by people who can't believe Michel Martelly is going to be the country's President.
