I have a solution for this election in Haiti.

First of all eliminate all the candidates who went to this election.

Then hand pick Leslie Jacques and his boyfriend Michel Souca as a Prime minister so they can get out of the closet.

In addition choose No more thean 2 New Candidates of whom one will be Titortue, L'artibonite Senator, and the other one will be Vicky Benoit to run for President of Haiti.
