Moise Jean Charles is example of Democracy in Haiti, Michel martelly

For the past two years, Senator Moise Jean Charles has not been moderate as to the various labels he has attributed to the government of Michel Martelly. Names like drug dealing, corruptions, dictatorship and racism are often words used by the Senator of North to describe our president. Do you think that the ability for Senator Moise Jean Charles to criticize the government of Michel Martelly is a proof that Democracy exists in Haiti?

At least the Haitian president believes that his government has exercised tolerance, a requirement for Democracy. During a visit in the city of Cap-Haitian on Thursday, January 23, 2014, President Michel Martelly confirmed that Senator Moise Jean Charles is a vivid proof that Democracy exists in Haiti.

Haiti National Dialogue has began, to what end?

This is something that has forever been in the public forum in Haiti. From Political Parties to religious, social and business sectors, many have been asking for a National Dialogue to bring all Haitians together. Now here is my question: Is this the real national dialogue we have been asking for?

Under the auspices of cardinal Chibly Langlois, President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Haiti, a new attempt is taking place to finally bring all Haitians together; however there are many barriers that need to be crossed before we can actually get to a real National Dialogue.

From March 2 to 4, 2014, the historic City of Independence Gonaives will be in celebration mode as it will host The National Carnival. Will this Kanaval period mark the beginning of the electoral campaign for the "Tèt Kale" Political Party, ahead of everyone else?

Why do I say that?

Picture this:
1) Theme selected for 2014 Kanaval: "Tèt Kole pou Ayiti Pi Djanm"
2) Who made the selection: Martelly's government "Tèt Kale"
3) What's special about 2014: "Election Year"

We also know for a fact that the slogan in the mouth of many during the carnival season wil not be "Tèt Kole, but rather "tèt Kale".

Martelly Blames Haitian Mentality for Protests

Haitian President Michel Martelly, responding to the recent spate of violent protests over the high standard of living, joblessness, and chronic corruption within his government, spoke with the European media.

To the charge his government is corrupt, he first blamed the Haitian mentality, but backpedaled to claim advisors of his had already been arrested and that more was to come. However, he did name names.

The protesting in the streets took the forms of rock throwing, tire burning, and shooting. Martelly argues what the citizens want is "unity and jobs, not conflict and further instability." He maintains he is highly motivated to change Haiti, so private investors will be encouraged to develop reconstruction projects.

Michel Martelly preaching unity in Gonaives

It seems that President Michel Martelly did not only talk about unity in Gonaives to celebrate the 210th anniversary of Haiti independence; he actually followed it with concrete action. By inviting the former Haitian leaders to join him in Gonaives, he actually became the "First" as he usually likes to say to show that he is inclined to bring unity among Haitians. He is the first to meet with so many former head of states, first to invite them to participate in an anniversary that should have been a point of unity among all Haitians.

Michel Martelly Popular despite Election Procrastination

Haitian President Michel Martelly is courting disaster if he does not hold legislative and local elections next year--and the earlier the better. They have been delayed more than two years, and repeated requests by senior government officials like Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, have fallen on deaf ears.

Frustration at Martelly's stubbornness in delaying the democratic process has been coming from the international community, particularly the U.S. Joe Biden, Obama's vice President, made a conciliatory call to Martelly recently to both remind him of the pending elections and to compliment him on his attempts to cooperate with Parliament and other political factions to handle unresolved issues.
