I have been hearing that the opposition to the government of Michel Martelly is not something that just some individuals who are not satisfied with his government are doing.
According to some Martelly supporters as well as others who are just interested in Haiti politic, this movement is not simple at all. There is one leader and strategist managing the entire movement.
The do name former president Jean Bertrand Aristide to be the mastermind behind this movement.
Whether it is a movement in the city of Les Cayes, Cap-Haitian or Jeremie. Whether it is a public statement by some members of political parties, Human Rights attorneys or many Haitian Senators or Deputies, some people would want us to believe that the hands of former president and Lavalas leader Jean Bertrand Aristide is all over it.
It is no longer a rumor. It is now confirmed that the wife of Richard Morse, Lunise Morse, has entered a new field, that of politic. She was officially designated last Saturday by Fanmi Lavalas to represent the political party at the next upcoming Senate election
Lunise Morse is the lead singer of the group RAM. Her candidacy for the Senate seat under the Lavalas Banner was announced during a ceremony to celebrate Mother's Day at the Aristide Foundation for Democracy.
If you can remember, the information has been circulating in the social media, after Lunise Morse's husband Richard Morse, made the information public. Richard Morse is the cousin and former adviser to President Michel Martelly. He recently accused left his post, accusing the current government of being involved in corruption corruption.
Writer, economist, and firebrand Gérard Pierre-Charles was born in Jacmel in 1935. A radical, whose political beliefs were shaped by the government of Haiti's failed attempts at democracy, he co-founded a Marxist organization. In 1959, feared dictator François Duvalier caused him to flee to Mexico.
For the next quarter-century, Pierre-Charles taught economics at Mexico City University. He achieved respect as an academician and political extremist. He co-founded Haitian Unified Communist Party (HUCP) and waited for Jean-Claude Duvalier to be deposed, which happened in 1986.
Back in Haiti, he grew disenchanted with the Communist Party, and became an ally of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who had founded Lavalas Party. Aristide was riding high on a wave of popular support, assuming the presidency in 1991. But military opposition ousted him shortly into his presidency. Pierre-Charles seized control of Lavalas and shaped it into an effective political tool, Lavalas Political Organization.
In Tabarre, Haiti, a Mother's Day Health Fair was held by the Aristide Foundation for Democracy (AFD) Saturday May 11th. Hundreds of residents showed up for free health exams, administered by AFD University freshman nursing students. On hand for the fair was ex-First Lady, Mildred Aristide, and Lunise Morse of political party, Fanmi Lavalas. She is preparing a run as a senatorial candidate in Legislative elections some time this year. Ex-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, whose supporters created Fanmi Lavalas, believes Morse stands a good chance of winning a seat in Parliament. He claims his party has grown steadily stronger over the years.
Since Aristides's ouster at the end of his second term in 2004, he has lived in Africa until his return to Haiti in 2011. Although exiled for seven years, Aristide, who exerts enormous influence within and without Haiti, raised enough funding to start his foundation and build a medical school, the Aristide Foundation University (AFUNI).
Haiti's own version of Martin Luther King Jr., rector, catholic priest and liberation theologian Pere Gérard Jean-Juste, left an indelible mark after his passing in May of 2009. The twice arrested Lavalas party supporter was not afraid to speak his mind about all aspects of life in Haiti, including those topics bound to stir up heated debates and even more serious trouble.
Hailing from Cavaillon, Pere Gérard was born on the 7th of February, 1946 and studied at a seminary in Canada before being the first ordained Haitian. His subsequent service in a parish church established his future dedication to assisting those in need.
The former Haitian president Jean Bertrand Aristide is still a force in Haitian politic. If you were not convinced, the public demonstration from his supports today will probably change your mind.
According to the latest report, thousands of Jean Bertrand Aristide supporters took to the streets to support their leader as he appeared in public for the first time since returning from exile. The leader of the Fanmi Lavalas Party was summoned by Haitian Judge Yvickel Dabresil in regard to the unsolved assassination of the famous Haitian journalist Jean Léopold Dominique and his guard. Jean Bertrand Aristide was accompanied by several elected officials such as Moise Jean Charles, John Joel Joseph, MP Saurel hyacinth and others.
Former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide finally has his day in court; however, this is something that might become one of the biggest events of the year. After Jean Claude Duvalier who had his day in court earlier this year, now it is Aristide's turn
I don't know if you have been able to detect trend and similarities within these two highly controversial personalities in Haitian politic, in that I mean Jean Bertrand Aristide and Jean Claude Duvalier, but I do. Let's see:
1) Both Jean Claude Duvalier and Jean Bertrand Aristide have passionate fanatics
The field is getting crowded. The next election in Haiti is definitely going to be something interesting. According to The Associated Press, Richard Morse, manager of the Hotel Oloffson and the leader of the musical band RAM, already met with Former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide three times in the past two weeks to discuss the possibility of his wife, Lunise Exume Morse, to run for the Senate seat under Fanmi Lavalas banner.
Richard Morse is a first cousin to president Michel Martelly. He left the government last January for what he called "corruption" in the National Palace. The Morses are considering for Lunise Exume Morse to run as candidacy for the west department in the next election likely to take pale in 2013 or 2014.
This is no longer a rumor. According to lematinhaiti.com, judge Yvickel Dabrezil who has been working on the case regarding the assassination of the CEO of Radio Haiti Inter, John Leopold Dominique and Jean Claude Louissaint has confirmed that to be a fact. The Lavalas Leader and former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide has received an invitation to answer questions around the assassination on April 3rd, 2000 of John Leopold Dominique and Jean Claude Louissaint
President Jean-Bertrand Aristide will be present at the cabinet of instruction, Wednesday, April 24, for questioning in the case following the invitation that was delivered to his residence of Tabarre.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide, two-term president of Haiti, went into exile in 2004. A polarizing figure in politics, his strong push for democracy put his life in danger several times. He survived six assassination attempts. In 2011, Aristide returned from South Africa, keeping out of sight since then.
But his appearance in public after being summoned to testify on the death of a political colleague has observers wondering if he intends to re-enter politics. He spoke to supporters about upcoming elections and Haiti's food crisis. He believes if Haiti's Electoral Council can hold "free, fair, and transparent" casting and counting of ballots, Fanmi Lavalas could win a significant number of seats in the senate.
