In Port-au-Prince in Haiti every Saturday, on the radio version of CNN's Crossfire, critics, politicians, wanting to be kingmakers, all arrive for a chance to spar verbal swords, accuse and debate on the future of Haiti.
They are all ready to have the opponents shredded in the war to shape opinion of the public. There is no stop clock, no audience in the studio, no applause meter. The only thing to hear is the amplified sound of voices in Creole accent that emanate all through the city.
This political firefight is tuned into by all listeners from Haiti, Paris, Montreal and Miami. This is all happening in a nation where there has been a repression of free speech right from historical times.
The election of Michel Martelly in the Caribbean country of Haiti marks the beginning of a new era. You are experiencing the beginning of a shift. This is a time when a new generation of Haitians is taking over to provide new leadership and at the same time allowing the old, to leave with grace.
The road will not be easy for them because this new generation of Haitian politicians will not have political experience. Don't worry; their common sense which is much higher than that of the old school will compensate for any lack in political experience.
We are announcing with pain and regret the death of Traditional Haitian Politic with the passage of this Election disaster in Haiti. This natural disaster, although unavoidable, took the lives of so many who were dear to the Haitian people. The funeral will be held on May 14, 2011, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in front of many Haitian and International observers.
Like many things we are use to for a long time, it will be hard for us to accept that those people who have dominated our political life for so long are no more.
The "Haitian Joudalist" is saying: "Traditional Haitian politic is over"

Why so many are interested on the position?
As it has been in the past, presidential candidates always seem to know the problem of Haiti and a solution for it. Why then the continues to go down instead of improving its condition?
Do you think any of the current candidates has what it takes to bring Haiti to a path of prosperity. Will the next Haitian president bring a solution to our economic problem. Will the people affected by the earthquake of January 12 have housing, food and find work? Will the next president solve our ongoing problem related to security. Will we be able to enjoy some of the basic services such as electricity and water?
