Name of Mandataires caught cheating in next election to be publicized

Leopold Berlanger getting ready to hold next election

The President of the CEP, Leopold Berlanger, thinks he has the problem regarding "Mandataires" or poll watchers under control for the next election scheduled for October 9, 2016. Berlanger admitted that what has triggered fraud in the previous election was the phenomenon of assigning blank accreditation cards to over 1 million poll watchers or "Mandataires" and allowing them to potentially cast multiple ballots at any polling station they want.

The current plan is to assign "Mandataires" only to the voting centers and polling stations where they are registered. Leopold Berlanger thinks that will reduce the potential for fraud.

In addition, this time anyone caught cheating will be published in the media with details of their crimes.

The Clinton's accused for wasting Haiti recovery fund

Even six years after the massive earthquake, many people in Haiti continue to hold that Hillary Clinton's State Department and the Clinton Foundation are responsible for a recovery effort that cost billions, but yielded a very little return. The Haitians often claim that earthquake aid money was mismanaged and lucrative deals went to Clinton cronies. To make room for Caracol Industrial Park, a Clintons' signature project in Haiti valuing $224 million, 366 farmers were evicted, valuable agricultural lands were acquired and as per late 2015, it created only 5,000 jobs instead of 60,000 promised jobs.

Hillary's State Department pressed the Haitian government to fix a slave wage rate per day (below $5.00)-- not to raise the minimum hourly wage rate to $0.62 from the prevailing $0.24 per hour.
