The representative of the Protestant Federation of Haiti (FPH), Vijonet Demero, calls it quit. He resigned from the CEP on Friday, 1/15/16. Vijonet Demero was also the Secretary General of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP)

In a letter dated January 15, 2016 addressing President Michel Martelly, Mr. Vijonet Déméro, the Secretary General of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) and an electoral adviser, representing the Protestant Federation of Haiti (FPH) has submitted his resignation from the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) for reasons beyond his control and has disclosed his plan to return to his earlier role at the Protestant Church. We might recall that in the last December Senator Desras had broadcast on several radio stations that Demero took $ 30,000 for favoring a candidate for deputy. An investigation was initiated by the Federation Ethics Committee, together with other bodies, including the National Defense Network of Human Rights (RNDDH). However, they found no evidence supporting the allegation. His resignation came within a week of the resignation (January 7, 2016), of another adviser Ricardo Augustin, a Representative of the Catholic Church. Ricardo was forced to resign on that day.

Who will be the next president of Haiti?

Who will be the next president of Haiti?

As Michel Martelly getting ready to leave office, many are asking one question: who will replace him either temporarily or permanently?. Who will have this heavy task to put things in order. So far, the three most likely candidates are: 1) the current judge of the Court of Cassation Jules Cantave, 2) the president of the Senate Jocelerme Privert 3) the actual Defacto Prime Minister Evans Paul.

On the other side, I also know that based on interest, many people would see it differently. Do you see it the same way i do? Do you see something evolving that i have not seen yet?

Do you have any suggestion?

Mother Mary Lange likely to become First Black Saint

Mother Mary Lange likely to become  First Black Saint

Haitian-born, Mother Mary, Oblate Sisters of Providence founder, has entered the final phase of canonization as the first black female saint.

Mother Mary died in 1882 after a lifetime of service to African-American children. She established a private school for them and the first black order, the Oblate Sisters.

Her remains have been placed in the Motherhouse in Baltimore.

What remains for canonization is a Positio, enumerating her works for God, and proof of two miracles in her life.
