Michel Martelly Vs Mirlande Manigat most likely

The Haitian Joudalist just learned that the two candidates likely to participate in the runoff Haiti election are Michel Martelly and Mirlande Manigat. We were told by a trusted source that partial polling are so far showing the two ahead and that the CEP will likely confirm this tomorrow, which will be November 7, the day scheduled to release the partial results.

Ro Yo Yoy!

Are you ready to have either our mother Mirlande Manigat or the president of Kompa, Michel Martelly, to be President of Haiti?

Haiti Election 2010

On election day, fifteen candidates for the 2010 Haiti election decided to take the high ground and stand on principles by calling for the annulation of the election.

Charles Henri Baker met Little Haiti in a Town Hall Meeting

Charles Henri Baker in a Town hall meeting in Little haiti

This is a first, a far as I can remember for Charles Henri Baker. A Town Hall meeting by Charles Henri Baker at the Cultural Center in Little Haiti revealed to be a success. The event happened last Saturday.

Does that mean that all the other candidates running for the Presidency of Haiti will follow do the same?

Once again the power of the Haitian Diaspora is on display. The importance given by Mr. Charles Henri Baker to the Haitian community living in Little Haiti demonstrates that Haitians are an integral part of Haiti, whether they are living inside or outside of the country. We need to find a way for these politicians not to give us importance only during the campaign season but also when in power.
