Mambo Euvonie Georges Auguste did not think that if she had to make a choice between being part of a Presidential Commission of Electoral Evaluation and remaining with Platform Renmen Ayiti would be too hard to make. In fact, it did not take her a long time to make the decision to ignore the request of the political platform to renounce to any participation in this Commission. Mambo Euvonie G. Auguste explained that "Renmen Ayiti is a platform composed of 6 political parties to which she is not a member of any of them.
Platform Renmen Ayiti was in shock to learn that member of its Board, Mambo Euvonie Georges Auguste, was appoint by President Michel Martelly to be part of his Commission of Electoral Evaluation and as a result has formally requested that she renounces to any participation in this Commission. For the Political Platform, the formation of this Commission is contrary to the request of the G8 which calls of preference in favor of the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry. In addition, Platform Renmen Ayiti denounced the new Commission of Electoral Evaluation, saying that it is contrary to the request of the G8 which calls for the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry.
The current political crisis in Haiti has reached an unprecedent level. The creation of an evaluation commission was supposed to facilitate the electoral process; however, somehow it has managed to make things worst. Now both the Group G8 with jude Celestin and Fanmi Lavalas rejected the Commission of Evaluation. they actually consider this action as the latest manouver by the president and are calling on the Haitian population for keep the pressure on the government.
The group G8 said that the learned the formation of a commission via the news media. They also stated that they noted that the request for the formation of a commission came from the CEP but the request was never made public. Both G8 and Fanmi lavalas feel that both the Executive and the CEP that are at the origin of this commission are part of the current problem and that it is unthinkable to have them engaged in the formation of a commission to impose a solution to the problem.
More revelations in the corruption scam at the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) are coming out. Beside Yolette Mengual, Vijonet Demero and Lourdes Edith Joseph are also named as CEP members who have been taking bribes from some of the candidates to winning them elected seats.
What do we know so far:
1: Gerald Jean, a candidate for Deputy for Ferrier/Perches, told several radio stations that he had paid more than $25,000 to a judge and CEP member Yolette mengual, in hopes of winning his seat on appeal. He showed copies of two bank deposit slips and said another $15,000 in cash was handed over in an envelope.
Prime Minister Evans Paul has officially aligned himself with the opposition that have been asking for the creation of an independent commission to investigate the election results. In a press release published on Twitter after midnight Thursday, the Prime Minister made the recommendation to President Michel Martelly for the formation of the commission that would have 72 hours to report back with recommendations to the government and the CEP. One very important question is: who should be part of this commission? this is an open question.
At this time, we don't know if a commission is possible, who are acceptable to be in it, whether or not Jude Celestin, the G8 will agree to it. In the meantime, election is scheduled for Dercember 27, 2015 or in less than two weeks from now. Also some members of the CEP members have threatened to resign in bloc if any commission is appointed.
The Candidate for Deputation, Mr. Gerald Jean, is not a happy customer and like many unhappy customer, he has decided to do something about it by puting everything out in the open.
According to the Candidate for Ferrier/Les Perches, Gerald Jean, he paid $15,000 US dollars in person to CEP member Yolette Mengual for a seat as Deputy. This accusation was revealed on "Vision 2000 a L'ecoute" show on Radio Vision 2000 with Valery Numa. Although this revelation can get him in a lot of trouble such as being involved in corruption by paying for an elected position; however, he feels that he must show to the public the CEP and the BCEN for what they really are, two institutions that are marred in corruption.
The candidate under the banner LAPEH, Jude Célestin, refuses to meet with the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP)
In a letter dated December 14, 2015, written in response to a request for a meeting with the CEP, Jude Celestin explained that any meeting would not be appropriate before the establishment of an Evaluation commissions in regard to the election results of October 25. He went further to say that a meeting at this time would even be superfluous without the establishment, without delay, of this Commission.
According to Jude Celestin, "We are now at a crossroads. As you, as an institution responsible for organizing credible elections, that I, presidential candidate, we have a duty to steer the country in the right direction, choose the right path by taking difficult and most courageous decisions."
Who said that Haitians could not put their head together to accomplish something? The proof can be seen just after the election. After a group of candidate got behind Jude Celestin as G8, now is the turn of an ever bigger group called G30, to get in and demostrate that in fact they can sing the song "Lunion fait la Force" or "Unity is strength". Louko Desir who you may well know as being the Presidential candidate who came last in the last election is one of the initiators of this project. According to Louko, G30 is political group 30 candidates who participated in the last presidential election. They have decided to put ideas from various political parties and have them to become one single project. Louko Desir went on to say that the group G30 has met in several occasions in the past and will soon issue a note to let the public know about their position.

Pandan plizyè jou, Prezidan CEP an te di pap gen okenn komisyon ankèt, pandan ke li di tet dwat pou eleksyon pwograme pou 27 Desanm. Nan Lendi, Pierre Louis Opont yon fwa ankò, deklare ke pa gen kesyon Komisyon endepandan pou ankète eleksyon. Li di ke CEP an pa gen okenn dispozisyon legal Dekrè Elektoral an etabli pou sa.
