Did you know that Leon Manus is dead?

Leon Manus, former President of the CEP died on Friday, October 26, 2012 in New Hampshire in United states. This news really revived a period in Haiti of significant importance.


Do you remember that in turn of this century, Leon Manus fled to the United States while he was in charge of CEP in Haiti. He feared for his life after he did not agree to approve results of a contested legislative and local elections.

Publication of the results of the May 21 election has been delayed, with opposition parties charging that the voting and the count were fixed to ensure a huge victory for the Lavalas Family party of the country's former president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

This is not my "Zin". However, according to rumors at the time, Leon Manus was given only two options by Presidents Rene Preval and Jean-Bertrand Aristide:

"you publish the results we indicate in favor of our party or you are a Dead Man".
