Maryse Narcisse, Fanmi Lavalas bank on Haitian misery

Samuel Maxime


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – Tèt Kale makes its butter telling you things are great in Haiti when they are worsening. Fanmi Lavalas, on the other hand, has Haitian misery as an economic theory and a means for staying in power. It’s hard to tell which is worse.

There are a sincere number of patriots who removed themselves from the electoral process in the hands of Pierre Louis Opont and Michel Martelly. They formed a resistance against an electoral coup d’etat and have been organizing protests for the resignation of the electoral council and transitional government.

Maryse Narcisse exploited the struggle of these compatriots, candidates and leaders of political parties. Along with Fanmi Lavalas they have used the movements to campaigns and try to appear popular. The only draw that reached above 200 people was when former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was being rumored would appear.

What Narcisse promises, as president, is to further transition Haiti into a Republic of Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs). Stories of hungry children, disease, poverty and crime will cover our television screens at night. Her government will, for itself, create incentive on natural disasters and other tragedies.

Fanmi Lavalas
Sak sanble rasanble? Fanmi Lavalas program planning session did not include representatives from the masses.


The same actors from 2010, Pierre Louis Opont, Kenneth Merten and the State Department, that brought Michel Martelly to power have taken over the electoral process and an overwhelming number of Haitians have rejected that and turned to protesting against it.

Fanmi Lavalas’ incoherence of appearing at these protests against the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) of Pierre Louis Opont, but yet, still fully engaged and campaigning for votes, for the elections of Pierre Louis Opont, they call it, “mobilization-election”.

It has been denounced by members of the Patriotic Resistance Space. Former Senator and Presidential Candidate Edmonde Supplice Beauzile lashed out directly.
