Jean Bertrand Aristide & Maryse Narcisse Campaigning

October 23, 2015, was the last day of campaigning for the 54 Presidential candidates running for the October 25, 2015 election. On the final day, the former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide came out of his residence in a car with Dr. (Mrs.) Maryse Narcisse, the candidate of his Fanmi Lavalas party which he founded in 1996.


Their ultimate destination was a huge seaside slum, Cite Soleil that was once a stronghold of Aristide. They were welcomed and cheered by thousands of supporters. Some of them shouted, "The King is here"! While others pointed to Dr. Maryse Narcisse as "mother". Earlier, to this joint campaigning, on September 30, 2015, the former President Aristide had spoken before an audience of 2,000 supporters who gathered outside his residence. Then standing by the side of Dr. Maryse Narcisse, he had endorsed her as his candidate and urged his followers to support her. That was the first occasion for him to speak in public since his return from exile in 2011.
