Haiti is a country that relies heavily on help from other countries. We need to maintain a good relationship with the international world. Haiti and the Dominican Republic are two countries that shares the island. Conflicts usually arise almost daily between Haitians and Dominicans. many people believe that the conflict between the two nations has its root from the occupation of the Dominican Republic by Haiti
The pressure continues to build on the Haitian government from inside as well as in the outside. The American government in particular wants immediate elections in Haiti and have been communicating directly and indirectly with the government. Three .U.S. Senators are now asking for sanctions to be imposed on Haiti.
In a letter addressed to the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Senators David Perdue, Marco Rubio and Johnny Isakson to use every tool to ensure that Haitian authorities to respect the agreement recently signed and conducts elections by the deadline. They want the Government of Privert to work closely with the new CEP to conduc the election as scheduled and to avoid any pretext for postponement.
I don't know if you feel it like I do; but I think there are some kind of uneasiness growing between the American and Haitian authorities. After the recent statements by US point man Kenneth H. Merten that did not go too well with some sectors of the Haitian Population, now it is the turn for United States of America Secretary of State John Kerry. According to Mr. Kerry, "The Haitian players, the so-called leaders, need to understand there's a clear limit to the patience, the willingness of the international community to condone this process of delay."
Viter Juste (15 December 1924- 19 November 2012), a Haitian-born businessman, an American community leader and activist is considered as the father of the Haitian American community in Miami. In earlier times "Little Haiti" (founded by Juste in the early 1980's), the present heart of the Haitian diaspora in Miami, was historically known as Lemon City. Juste, to describe the place in an article published in the Miami Herald, first coined the name, "Little Port-au-Prince." The editor of the newspaper found the name too long and shortened it as "Little Haiti."
Today, the signs of Little Haiti's impending transformation are evident everywhere. A bronze statue of General Toussaint L'Ouverture, the father of Haitian independence, stands at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 62nd Street in the heart of "La Petite Haiti." The spot of Wendy's restaurant on NE 62nd Road in Little Haiti, while maintaining own typical character, will be very soon transformed into a space of $2.5 million cultural arts center with art studio and exhibition area with a courtyard and an eatery. The project as envisaged will be completed in 2017 as per the imaginations and thoughts of two Venezuelans, artist Miguel Prypchan and lawyer Francisco Herretes. They are working to protect cultural heritage and expand valuable green and public gathering space of Little Haiti.
Kenneth Merten, continues, as some Haitians would call it, with his interference in Haiti's affairs. "The International Community will be in difficulty to assist Haiti if the electoral crisis continues" according to US State Depatment point man for Haiti affairs. He further stated that if the government in Haiti decides to create a Verification Commission, they most do their job quickly because the International Community suspects that the commission is going to try to remove one or two candidates out of the process.
Was that an order?

The opposition group G-8 thinks that it would be a waste of their time to meet with the Organization of American States' mission (OAS), as a result declined to meet them. The OAS mission came to Haiti last Sunday to help find a solution to the current electoral crisis, following an invitation from President Michel Martelly. According to Mr. Samuel Madistin who is a member of the G-8, the OAS mission is not welcome and unable to play any role as a mediator. "The OAS doesn't help Haiti come out of crisis, instead creates more crisis," said Madistin, referring to the 2010 election where Jude Celestin was eliminated from the run off.
The Republican National Committee is scheduled to start running a series of ads in an effort to attract non-white voters in 2016. Pierry, the son of Haitian immigrants from Queens, is in on of those ads. The Republican party realized how poorly they did in 2012 when they only got 6 percent of the African-American vote and 27 percent of the Hispanic vote. they are hoping that with these ads, more minority groups will be voting for them. However, recent comments made by GOP candidate Donald Trump about immigrants, Mexicans, women, Muslims and other groups have not been helpful to the party.
