#1589: Happy New Year and the Haitian Presidential Race: a comment

From: Jean Paul <jpp@compa.net>

I applaud the initiative of Mr Lraraque to push Corbrtters to look into the
political scene in Haiti. The real problem to haiti's ill may lie in the
structure that power has been excecised and not the lack of resources over
the years.

What I do not appreciate, as an elections professionnal, is that after
candidates numbering close to 15,000 have just registered for positions
ranging from local assemblies to 2/3 of the Senate, where most of the
political power should be wielded under the new constitution, professionals
still look to the presidency as the only source of power.
