Prime Minister Evans Paul is re-positioning himself in the political landscape of Haiti. In an interview he gave to Marie Lucie Bonhomme Opont at radio Vision 2000 this morning, he clearly showed signs of opposition to the actual Provisional President Jocelerme Privert who he is still working for. According to Evans Paul, he is not for another commission to investigate allegations of frauds in the previous election. "If we are going to have a new CEP that is supposed to take into consideration the recommendation of the previous commission, why create an new commission of verification", said Paul

The problems for radio superstar Liliane Pierre-Paul did not finish with the end of Martelly's government. With the decision of Provisional President Jocelerme Privert to pick her husband, Anthony Barbier, to become the new general secretary of the National Palace, the spotlight is once again on her. The social media is already all over her, suggesting that Liliane Pierre-Paul is not going to be as critical to the new government as he was in the past because her husband is in the government of Jocelerme Privert.
What do you think? Will Liliane Pierre-Paul be critical to the government of Jocelerme Privert now that her husband is par of it? Do you think she is willing to put her journalistic career that she spent several years building just for love?
Marylynn Steckley, is one of the five research finalists in the "Research for a Better Life: the Storytellers" sponsored by the Canada based Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Marylynn is driven by a passionate concern for food, agriculture and rural development in Haiti, especially about the livelihoods of peasant farmers and how their lives are affected by the combined adverse changing conditions in the present economic, political, cultural and trade liberalization systems. The depth and scope of her fieldwork with understanding and critical analysis is truly remarkable for a graduate student. In the course of her PhD, she worked and lived with her family in Haiti for almost 3 years and conducted extensive qualitative interviews and surveys with peasant farmers in fluent Haitian Creole (her children also speak Creole). The final result of her work is exceptional rich empirical data and a deep understanding of peasant struggles.
Just like most Haitians, yesterday (February 14, 2016) I was watching the ceremony of investiture of Jocelerme Privert as the Provisional President of Haiti. Like many I suppose, I was very surprised to see some of the hard core oppositions present at the ceremony such as Maryse Narcissi and Mildred Aristide. But to me it was even more surprising to see Prime Minister being marginalized as he was standing in the crowd just like everyone else listening to the President. Some people said that it was nothing because all the dignitaries were there including all the ministers.
However, I think it was more than that with Prime Minister Evans Paul. There may me a coded message coming on the part of Jocelerme Privert to let the Haitian Prime Minister know that he has no place in his administration.
In the past some people would try to take Haiti National Palace while it was occupied. As a result, this often resulted in bloody Coup D'etat, leaving many people dead. This time, former Deputy Arnel Belizaire has a better plan. While Haiti National Palace is unoccupied, he wants to head an army of no more than 120 soldiers to take over the National Palace.
Who would disagree? The National Palace is vacant. It should be an easy coup D'Etat

Three days following the end of the government of Michel Martelly, The PNH continues to provide security protection not only to President Michel Martelly, not only to his family but also to someone who did not have an official function at the national palace. As of February 9, 2016 or three days after the end of the government of Michel Martelly, Roro nelson was still enjoying the benefits and privileges for being a close friend of Michel Martelly. As Roro Nelson was enjoying himself on Mardi Gras, the last day of the Carnival season, about 6 Police Officers from the PNH was on duty assuring his protection.
Michel Martelly has once again demonstrated to the rest of the world why Haitians are unique. Only in Haiti you can be a seating president and release a song in Sweet Micky style. Only in Haiti a seating president can release a song with sexually suggestive lyrics about a well-known radio reporter and human rights advocate such as Liliane Pierre-Paul. Only in Haiti president Michel Martelly can accuse another journalist like Jean Monard Metellus of using skin lightening products in his popular Carnival song in hopes of becoming a pretty girl. Only in Haiti where a country is in the middle of a major crisis, but the focus of its president is on his latest music release
On Thursday, December 17, 2015, Dieudonne Pierre Bélizaire, better known as Sister Dona, the Director and founder of the orphanage of 'Sisters Redemptive of Nazareth", has been cleared of kidnapping charges in a criminal court in Port-au-Prince, and was released immediately. She was detained in the Civil Prison of Petion-ville since 21 June 2012 without any jury assistance in connection with the disappearance of Raphaël Chenet, a minor child from her orphanage on Sunday, June 5, 2011.
She was held in custody following a complaint filed by Alfred Chenet, the father of the child, accusing she had sold his child although she had consistently claimed her innocence. He acquitted Sister Dona on charges of kidnapping, child trafficking and criminal conspiracy in the criminal court of the Palace of Justice of Port-au-Prince although as per the Registry records of the Kenscoff Peace Court, dated July 18, 2011, the culprit, a former employee of the orphanage Djimmy Mémé, did confess his crime. It further states that no person in the orphanage was involved in the crime. Moreover, it was a noted fact that Sister Dona was not in Haiti during the time of the crime.
