Voodoo Sector selects Carline Viergelin for the CEP

What is going on with the Voodoo sector in Haiti? It appear that there is major confusion and conflict between them to come up with someone to represent the at the CEP. From what I understand, they have chosen Voodoo practitioner Carline Viergelin to replace Néhémie Joseph at the CEP; however, many members are not supporting her.


According to information we have on hand, the selection of Carline Viergelin has created more problems than it solves. Many blames President Michel Martelly and the president of the CEP, Pierre Louis Opont as being behind this selection.

However, like it is the case in almost every situation in Haiti, this is not the end. The choice of Carline Viergelin to represent the Voodoo sector at the CEP is no longer a religious matter and therefore is loaded with controversy.

Should we say to Voodoo, welcome to Haitian politic?

According to some members of the Voodoo religion in Haiti, Houngan Carline Viergelin can not and does not represent the Voodoo sector at the CEP. They believe that this selection was imposed on them and that they do not want to take any part of it.

What do you think?
