Dr. Maryse Narcisse, next Fanmi Lavalas candidate for the next Presidential election

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.

In her past, Dr. Narcisse lived out her exile in Miami, following the coup that ousted former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. She would then become Arisitide's personal spokesperson and became the voice for the Lavalas movement heard around the world. After two years, she returned to Haiti following the election of Preval to president and resumed her efforts to bring democracy back to Haiti.
