VERITE No Longer Participating in Elections

VERITE political party has made the hard decision not to press forward for the second round of voting on October 25th.

VERITE is an intimidating political force to Tet Kale, President Martelly's party. And it is suspected Tet Kale may have been behind the violence on Election Day. VERITE has also sustained a blow regarding its participation in the presidential elections.
