Instability in Haiti


Haitian citizens who are not yet diagnosed with amnesia could well remember that the unconstitutional or premature end of government is the art work of the majority of the team leading the nation today. Laurent Lamothe needs to revisit the history of the 1991 coup and 2004 forced removal to see the bloody hands of many of his friends and colleagues in the present administration. The opposition only needs a balanced electoral council with some citizens that are not cronies of President “Sweet Micky” like it is today and wants to follow the norms of the law of the land.

The El Rancho Accord was put together by some friends of President Michel Martelly and must not put aside the branch of the Haitian parliament that refuses to be part of the institutional corruption installed by the executive branch. The state of instability has always favored Martelly and his friends.
