President Michel Martelly has American and Italian Citizenship, So What!

The most important news coming out of Haiti for he past few weeks has been allegation that president Michel Martelly is not only Haitian. According to Senator Moise Jean Charles, The Haitian President has been lying about his citizenship. Moise told everyone that he has proof that our beloved President Martelly holds both American and Italian citizenship and consequently not qualified to be the President of Haiti.


Senator Joseph Lambert confirmed yesterday that two members of the Government cabinet so far have been found to be of foreign nationality. The Commission responsible to investigate the matter plans to travel outside of the country to Washington DC as well as to many other countries to verify the nationality of President Michel Martelly.

President: "The truth should set you free"

The Commission can find the truth about President Michel Martelly and lay to rest the doubt about his citizenship

I have some questions however that I have not been able to find an answer for:

Why does the commission need need to go all the way to Washington DC to find information about the citizenship of President Michel Martelly? The US Ambassy is right here in Port-au-Prince and has all the information. Do you think the US government will really cooperate and put light on the issue or will instead attempt to manage the potential crisis?

Can't the president just show his passport or previous expired passports showing his travel history? Do we really have to spend money to send people all around the world in search of the truth about the citizenship about President Michel Martelly? Are those passports lost?

Senator Moise Jean Charles has been the principal actor in these allegations. Why does Senator Jean Charles decide to go after this government and not after previous governments since there were similar accusations in the past? Is the Senator is acting by himself or is he part of a bigger movement to remove president Martelly from office? Who else might be involved secretly?

If President Michel Martelly is found to holding citizenships of other countries, should we say so what? after all, whether he is Haitian, American of Italian, the Haitian population voted for him.

One thing i know my friend is that you can fool some people some times but you can not fool all the people all the times.

There is a Haitian proverb that says that "Ou Rekoplte Sa ou Seme".

It means that when the other group was in power, there was no discussion about giving the country a chance.

I remember President Aristide did everything in his power to bring the opposition into the table to find point of agreement.

Mr Simon pierre, don't forget that President"Tet kale-a"has been participed in most of coup D'etet in haiti.

In 1991 he was hierd by Raoul cedras as Ninja to killed Haitian people.

In 2004 He provided money to Guy Phillipe In Dominican Republic to make kidnapping against President Aristide.

Now He was elected democraticly even thaugh only 700 thoursands people in 4 millions 5 hundreds people who supposed to be participed in that mascarade of december 28th 2010. No compromise or compromission if he got another nationality.

fighting about citizenship of the Presisent Martelly is not going to make any change in the situation of the haitian people, if he would have other citizenship, why would not the CEP stop him from running for President.

I think that it is best to think about those peoples which are in serious conditions of living.Take the President away of the office and subtitute by someone else is not going to make any change in our terrible situations.

Please, Haitian Parlementarian, just give him a change to do what he has in mind for this country.

What I would like some of us to do, is to take a look at this so call "U.S passport" of the president, in which he is portrayed with a full head of hair. Can anyone tell me the last time they've seen this man harboring any hair?

Suffice to say that for a passport issued in 2007, the majority of us should definitely remember if this man had any hair or not around time.
If there is some hidden agenda at play inside the Senate, they should find a better way to do this because as of now, this one has already

We are looking at a Modern Coup D'etat in HAITI.

In the old time it use to be by military coup. No longer.

Like everything else in Haiti, coup d'etat has evolved to more sofisticated methods such as kidnapping, finding dirth on the group in power and make it impossible to accomplishanything.

The objective is that if you do not deliver, with their support they will help the population to turn against you.
