105 out of 192 Political parties approved by CEP

Silvio Joseph - March 26 2015, 8:06 AM

The recent explosion in the registration of Political parties at the CEP may be seen as too many. However, that is not the case at all. There is an argument in favor of having many political parties interested in an election.

In a country like Haiti where we are only at the beginning or at the foundation in the process of building a Democracy, this is actually a very good sign. it show the level of interest among Haitians in the process.

This can only improve the situation in the long run.

My second reason for looking at this in a positive way is that: having 50, 100, 500 or even a thousand political parties does not change the fact that there are two ot at the most three political currants in Haiti which is the case in many democratic societies.

If you want me to be more more specific, i can name two political currants in the Haitian society, not three, not four. On the one side, you have the Lavalas party with all its sub parties, representing a certain group and believing one way for the economy, class relation in the society, who should be in control.

On the other side, you have the other group that can be Tet Kale, or any others who think that the way to help the population is to open it for business.

By the way, anything else is a subdivision of one or the other.

None of these two currents can win any election by themselves.

They will have to bring themselves somewhere in the middle
