Phase II of Inter-Haitian dialogue at El Rancho

The Episcopal Conference of Haiti (CEH) facilitated Phase II of the Inter-Haitian dialogue when President Martelly met with 23 delegates from 48 political parties in mid-February. The discussions revolved around disbanding the Transitional College of the Permanent Electoral Council (CTCEP) and settting up a Provisional Electoral Council (PEC).

Delegates are saying the second round of talks is contentious because Martelly is resistant to the idea of abolishing CTCEP and forming the PEC in its stead. Jantel Joseph of National Consortium of Pro Political Parties argues the consensus reached should not be forced on Martelly. But Bishop Aris of CEH disagrees, saying consensus should be imposed.

The day Canada and France said Jean-Bertrand Aristide "must go"

2014 is not a leap year. So, that means 28 days are all we will have. Still, while the date February 29 will not come around again for another two years, this man-made measurement of time cannot postpone the 10th anniversary of the overthrowing of the Aristide administration.

As chronicled in part 1 of a 3 part series by writer Yves Engler for the newsletter Dissent Voice, the government of Canada's Jean Chrétien, the then Prime Minister, organized an initiative to which French, Canadian and American officials were invited. The object of the "Ottawa Initiative on Haiti" was to have the country's democratically elected President ousted so the army could be reinstated and the country put under a trusteeship by the United Nations, much like that for Kosovo.

Next generation of Haitian leaders, American-Haitian Diaspora

If you are an enterprising youth with hopes of a future as a leader in Haiti, a new scholarship program, put on by the American-Haitian Diaspora through the Embassy of Haiti in Washington, D.C., will be just right for you. The planned annual scholarship program will give the opportunity to young professionals and college students to visit Haiti and receive first hand mentorship and experience working within Haiti's key governmental departments.

The scholarship is unpaid, so candidates will be expected to bear responsibility for their travel, lodging, transportation and all personal expenses, expected to cost as much as $4,500 USD for their stay. Candidates are expected to provide evidence of their academic ability, have excellent oral and written communication skills in French and, preferably, also Creole, the ability to solve problems, work well with others, and work on initiative.

MOPOD movement transformed into political party

The political landscape just changed, once again, for Haiti. It isn't the outing of an old regime and in with a new this time, however, but the addition of another political party to the fray. The new party was born out of the recent meeting of the Patriotic Movement of the Democratic Opposition (MOPOD).

When the group met in late January, it was to discuss the current situation of politics in the society and also to put themselves in an appropriate position in the inter-Haitian dialogue to take place between the civil society, the political parties and the executive. They ended up resolving to turn their movement, previously only a means of bringing together the main opposition parties of RDNP, PROP, OPL, and INITE, into a new political party in order to secure the resignation of the current regime of President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe.

Maryse Narcisse, Pasha Vorbe and Antony Dessources for Fanmi Lavalas

Maryse Narcisse, Pasha Vorbe and Antony Dessources

An occasion to be talked about for months to come, the recent staging of the first meeting for inter-Haitian dialogue was witness to the presence of representatives of the party Fanmi Lavalas, staunch opponents of the dialogue as before they had expressed that they did not feel the conditions were yet right to hold such talks. It was then, with great surprise, that the dialogue was presented with the party's coordinator, Maryse Narcisse, Antony Dessources and Pasha Vorbe.

Their newfound interest might have something to do with the fact that MOPOD recently threw themselves into the lot as a political party, all with the aim of ousting the current ruling administration of Martelly/Lamothe. Making the case even more curious when one remembers that it was just December 2, 2013 when Fanmi Lavalas itself denounced two of their own leading members, Deputy Arnel Bélizaire and Senator Moïse Jean-Charles, for demanding much the same thing.
