Daniel Supplice Appointed Coordinator of the Martelly Transition Team

Haiti president-elect Michel Martelly has chosen his political advisor, Daniel Supplice, to lead his transition team... Is Daniel Supplice qualified?

Daniel Supplice is an ethnologist, a sociologist, and honestly, the guy has a political resume that is as old as "MOI" and believe me, I am not that young!

If your "Francais" is good, you can read Daniel Suplice's resume here.

What is the purpose of a Presidential Transition team in Haiti?

First of all... Transition teams are not something we are used to in Haitian politics. Most Haitian presidents either die in office or are exiled (DESHOUKE). They are never around to "Transit" anything!

I am not kidding... Read your Haitian history!

Transition Teams Serve A Great Purpose...

Remember... The duty of the President of Haiti as Head of State, according to article 136 of the Haitian constitution, is to see to the stability of the institutions and ensure the regular operations of the public authorities and the continuity of the State (LETA).

In order for the president to do that effectively, he has to hire a team who will look at the organization, function, and management of the government departments and agencies that will assist in carrying out the policies of the new president and his government.

Differences in philosophies or ideologies can affect how policies are carried out; therefore, a good look at the inner workings of the departments and agencies is necessary when a change in administrations is about to occur.

(Some of the wording of this article is borrowed from an article by Samuel J. Watson, chief of staff of the Reagan/Bush transition team)


What do you know about Daniel Supplice?

Do you think he is the man for the Job?

There has always been a problem with transparency in the Haitian government... How cooperative do you think the Preval government will be in assuring a smooth transition?

Has there ever been a smooth transition in Haiti?

What if there are questions asked that the current leaders of these government agencies refuse to answer?

Is this how they train the new Haitian leaders on how to become a "Magoullieur?" LOL... I'm just asking...

Tipical Haitian coruption training: "Moncherrrr... Bo isit la... Se konsa bagay yo fet... S'on pase w-ap fe... ou konprann???... Si-w panse ou pral fe bagay serye la-a... w-ap kraze biznis la... ou konprann???"

I can feel how respectful are you. If you love history, let me tell you there is no such thing called " rupture with the past".It is only a game of words.

If I could put it in a formula, I would say: Past + Present= Future.
