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.

Here is Jean Bertrand Aristide and Maryse Narcisse on the last day of campaigning.
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.
