Recently, on March 25, 2015, the Popular Patriotic Dessalinien Movement (MOPOD), has announced two of its important nominations for the upcoming election-- Samuel Madistin & Mirlande H. Manigat. Mr.Madistin is a lawyer who has always as remained active against all human rights abuses. He has clarified his decision to join the MOPOD in a "944 word descriptive open letter". Former First Lady Manigat (between February 7, 1988 - June 20, 1988) endorsed her intention for nomination as "program and ideology of MOPOD is not about slogans, it is about real programs." MOPOD was initially a political coalition that recently, on March 26, 2015 has turned into a political party based on a shared ideology. The coalition has changed its earlier name 'the Patriotic Movement of the Democratic Opposition' but maintains the same acronym MOPOD.
Here is a picture of Dr. Tunep Delpe, One of the leaders of the MOPOD. This political movement has called for the resignation of President Michel Martelly.
Haitian head of state President Michel Martelly has been busy securing a compromise with the country over the current election debacle. After resigning one prime minister, appointing an interim, electing a new candidate, and possibly securing his approval, the president is still being met with calls for his resignation. This is a condition that cannot be new to him as, as recently as 2013, the Patriotic Movement of the democratic opposition (MOPOD) has been demanding elections or the resignation of the president. This year, it is expected one of these demands may be finally met.
Here is a picture Assad Volcy who is in the Plateforme Pitit Dessalines, He has been one of the leaders who would not settle for anything less than the resignation of President Michel Martelly. This picture was taken during a protest on December 18, 2014
A group of protesters mobilized yet again to demonstrate for the removal of the Prime Minister and President of Haiti. Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe has already been made to resign, but it remains to be seen if this will cease the tide of demonstrations plaguing the government. One demonstrator is Assad Volcy, the coordinator of the Tèt Ansanm organization, who recently threw his hat into the ring with newly formed political party - headed by Senator Moise Jean Charles - Pitit Dessalines. Volcy said during the demonstration that only the resignation of both men would ensure favor.

MOPOD asks Evans Paul whose Side are You on?
KID leader Evans Paul has decided to sever ties with MOPOD, resistant to dialoguing with President Martelly. MOPOD contacted KID to find out what Paul's position is.
Paul says ". . . dialogue is the only way to find a viable solution to the problems of the county." He adds KID cannot be for dialoguing, but simultaneously not willing to compromise.
MOPOD wants Martelly's resignation, who has nominated Paul as the next prime minister.
Here is a picture of the two members of the opposition who were arrested today, October 26, 2014, during an anti-Government protest. Coordinator Biron Odige and spokesman for FOPARK(Mobilizasyon manch long pou voye Mateli ale) and Rony Timothee were both arrested.
The two were arrested at the opposition rally in Bel Air, at the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in the morning and taken to the police station in Petion-ville. The National Police has not provided any information concerning the arrest.
The protest did go on as scheduled, however. Several thousand protesters marched through the capital demanding the chance to vote in legislative and local elections. They started their rally in Bel Air slum, burning piles of wood and holding up their voting cards to show they were ready to cast ballots.
They traveled the streets of the Capital chanting several anti-Martelly slogans. the crowd got bigger as they reached St Martin, Delmas and Petion-ville to end at the Champ de Mars.

Opposition Outrageous Demands Preclude Meeting
The Patriotic Movement of the Democratic Opposition (MOPOD) is refusing to sit down with President Martelly and work out issues concerning the Provisional Electoral Council and early general elections. MOPOD wants an increasing political agenda to be acceded to before it will hold discussions, or it will ask for Martelly's resignation.
MOPOD is mobilizing nationally to force the Martelly-Lamothe government to meet its demands, or else it will ask Martelly to leave the country. Opposition G6 Senators however are open to a dialogue with Martelly.
