Haiti Presidential Candidate Jean Chevalier Sanon, is Canadian

After Jacky Lumarque and François Levelt another presidential candidate for the upcoming election in Haiti has been excluded from the race. This time, it is Mr, Jean Chevalier Sanon who has been excluded from the race for misrepresenting his nationality. According to the CEP, he is a Canadian citizen and has been holing a Canadian passport.


Investigation conducted by the CEP revealed that the candidate Jean Chevalier Sanon is in possession of a Canadian passport, number JK702380.

Mr. Jean Chevalier Sanon is in violation of section 135 of the Haiti Constitution, paragraph (1), 36 of the Electoral Decree, paragraph (a) which stipulates that to be elected president in Haiti, you must be a Haitian of origin and never renounce your nationality at the time of registration. As a consequence, his case will be transferred to the criminal criminal courts.

If you recall, two other candidate have been removed for different reasons. Jacky Lumarque was dismissed for not receiving proper discharge, a charge that is still being contested by the candidate and his supporters; and François Levelt who was convicted in the United States for trafficking crack and cocaine.

At this point, don't we think that we need to question the moral character of our leaders? former, present and future?

Is there an existence of attributes such as empathy, courage, fortitude, honesty or loyalty?

If those virtues do not exist or are hard to come by who are we electing in Haiti?
