Pras Michél of the Fugees who was one of the first supporters of Michel Martelly and subsequently has kept his distance due to dissatisfaction with the Martelly team made his opinion known.

Pra made it clear that "Haiti needs a progressive leader, a hybrid dictator like China"."Haiti needs someone to rule with an iron fist and then take their foot off the pedal."

This is not the first time I hear these kind of statements being made by either Haitian or people who have been following Haitian politics for years.

Joseph Lambert strategically placing himself to win

The Lambert brothers, Joseph and Wincesclass Lamber, were defeated in the last legislative election in Haiti. It will be strange not to hear a Lambert represent the Sud-Est.
