Mirlande Manigat, I want to be President with or without your vote

Should we be listening to someone with experience, someone who is older than many of us? I am referring to Ms. Mirlande Manigat. The 74 year-old former First Lady, former 2010 presidential candidate spoke few days following the visit of the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Port-au-Prince. While the US Secretary insists on election in Haiti this year, Ms. Manigat on the other hand is assuring her place at the next transitional government.


US government has clearly rejected the demands by several opposition groups in Haiti to invalidate the results of recent legislative elections, and to set up a transitional government that will be conducting the next election. "Let me be very clear! The only way to have a change of government is through the election process," said John Kerry.

Former first lady Mirlande Manigat once again said on Tuesday that she was prepared to lead a new transitional government to avoid a spoiled electoral process, street violence and eventually an electoral coup d'etat.

These warning signs point out by Mirlande Manigat so far have not made the intended effects. Instead, to many people, she is seen as someone who has a dream to be president of Haiti and now is running out of time.

Isn't it similar to a woman who is lowering her standards and requirements for her future husband as she is going up in age?

What do you think?

Haitians have made in the past many bad choices about electing a leader.

They thought Martelly was a good choice, within a couple of years, they wanted him out, why is it so difficult to elect a person who has experience, is it because that person is female?

Maybe this time they'll get it right.

I also do not understand your last

She is out of her mind, let be clear Mrs Manigat will never be president in Haiti.

She needs to stop the none sense with or without her the country shall move
