Following the investiture of Prime Minister Fritz Jean, in an interview given to the news media, Senator Andris Riche refers to both President Jocelerme Privert and Prime Minister Fritz Jean as Members of the Political Party Lavalas which already damaged Haitian politic. He also referred to them as pest rats, rabble, delinquents who are dressed

There is no doubt that several factions of the Lavalas movement were present in force at the National Palace for the inauguration of Jocelerme Privert as Haiti new Provisional President. The event was marked by the presence of the current Fanmi Lavalas presidential candidate Maryse Narcisse and Aristide 's own wife, Mildred Aristide. Some people said that Jean Bertrand Aristide had deployed his heaviest weapon in a show of force.
Ores Nixon who is a Fanmi lavalas activist in the street was also present during the inauguration of Jocelerme Privert. According to Ores, "The last time I came to the palace was in 2003 when President Aristide was in power, now look at me, inside the national palace with a glass of champagne, celebrating the inauguration of our President Jocelerme Privert"
To all those who thought that former President Jean Bertrand Aristide can't speak out, I have some news for you. Titide will will not remain quite forever. As a matter of fact, you will be hearing from him soon. The announcement was made by the former First Lady Mildred Trouillot Aristide.
Many people so far think that the former Fanmi lavalas leader, Mr. Jean Bertrand Aristide has been ordered not to speak out. According to Mildred Trouillot Aristide, that is not the case. She informed the public on Wednesday during a celebration march for Aristide's 62nd anniversary that her husband will make public his support for the Fanmi lavalas candidate Maryse Narcisse.
Lavalas Extremists Accuse Senator Heriveaux of Spying for the U.S. The story of Haitian Communications Minister Rudy Heriveaux's battle to seize party leadership in the Senate was revealed by Wiki Leaks diplomatic cables released recently. Heriveaux began as a Family Lavalas (FL) deputy; and after Aristide was deposed in 2004 Heriveaux broke ranks with the extremist faction of the party, moved to center, and distanced himself from Aristide. Heriveaux campaigned for a senate seat in 2006 against 54 candidates from 28 parties. In the first round of voting he landed in seventh place. If not for second-place winner Mirlande Manigat's decision to drop out, Heriveaux never would have gotten to sixth place, eligible to be in the run-off. He took second place in the run-off, winning his senate seat, achieving for Lavalas its loftiest position in Parliament.
Dr. Maryse Narcisse, received recently the nomination of the political party Fanmi Lavalas to potentially be the country's next president as early as 2015. The news was corroborated on Radio Kiskeya's 4pm news by party leaders Dr. Schiller Luidor and Dr. Louis Gerald Gilles.
Acting as the National Coordinator of the party, Narcisse has been featured in the controversial sanctioning of activists Deputy Arnel Belizaire and Senator Jean Charles Moise. Dr. Narcisse, who promotes democracy and has done much for education and community-based health care in the country, is a medical doctor. It is hoped her experience in healing can be of use to the party that is said to be suffering from a takeover of the "bourgeois makoutise". At present, the party is deemed to be in second place because of this crack in its foundation. Leading currently is the Inite Party, the political party of the former Haitian President, Rene Preval. One other issue Dr. Narcisse will have to contend with is the perception of her involvement with the United States Embassy in Haiti, as well as other private sector leaders.
If anyone had hoped to spend a quiet day in Port-au-Prince on September 30, that was not the case. On this important date which marks the anniversary of a 1991 military coup that ousted former Haitian president Jean Bertrand Aristide, the country's Capital was anything but peaceful.
Large crowd of Lavalas supporters attempts to march from the church where Aristide led services when he was a Catholic priest to his house in Tabarre. However, well equiped riot police fired water cannons and tear gas to disperse the protest

On of the leaders of the opposition of the government of Michel Martelly has been put out of commission on the eve of a major protest. Rony Timothee was placed in custody in Petion-Ville.
The leader of the Lavalas FOPARK party, Rony Timothee, a fierce opponent of the Martelly / Lamothe government, received his arrest on Saturday afternoon in a location not far from Toussaint Louverture International Airport.
According to Radio Kiskeya, Rony Timothee was taken to the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police ( DCPJ ), the later placed in custody at the police station in Petion -Ville .
An occasion to be talked about for months to come, the recent staging of the first meeting for inter-Haitian dialogue was witness to the presence of representatives of the party Fanmi Lavalas, staunch opponents of the dialogue as before they had expressed that they did not feel the conditions were yet right to hold such talks. It was then, with great surprise, that the dialogue was presented with the party's coordinator, Maryse Narcisse, Antony Dessources and Pasha Vorbe.
Their newfound interest might have something to do with the fact that MOPOD recently threw themselves into the lot as a political party, all with the aim of ousting the current ruling administration of Martelly/Lamothe. Making the case even more curious when one remembers that it was just December 2, 2013 when Fanmi Lavalas itself denounced two of their own leading members, Deputy Arnel Bélizaire and Senator Moïse Jean-Charles, for demanding much the same thing.
After suffering major damage to the C4 and C5 bones of his vertebrae, Lavalas party member, Joel Edouard Vorbe could have given up on life and the pursuit of progress. Born with all his faculties intact, it took a bullet, fired by a gunman who also took the life of Vorbe's step-father in the same outdoor assault, to rob an ambitious, young pastry chef of his dream.
Joel Edouard Vorbe was born in 1975 and knew quickly what he wanted to do with his life. He would study at the Institute Saint Louis de Gonzague in Port-au-Prince, before studying the culinary arts and hospitality management in France. After four years as a student, Vorbe returned to Haiti and worked in his chosen career until the incident which robbed him of the use of all his limbs.
It has been reported that the protest is well and they are in direction to the American Embassy as promised. There is also report that another major protest is currently taking place in the city of Cap-Haitian as well. They are close to Gerals Bataille
Here is a step by step report of the protest:
2:00 PM: Heavy police presence at the crossroads Fleuriot, the main road leading to the US Embassy in Por-au-Prince.
The police dispersed with tear gas protesters who wanted to reach the US Embassy. Another leg of the protesters headed by Fanmi Lavalas party Maryse Narcisse went to Ruelle Vaillant.
