Duvalier and Aristide Invited To Michel Martelly Presidential Inauguration

Did you know? All living ex-presidents of Haiti have been invited to attend the inauguration of Michel Martelly as Haiti's new president... Jean-Claude Duvalier, Jean Bertrand Aristide, Rene Preval, everybody...

Jean-Bertrand Aristide And Jean-Claude Duvalier

How do you like that Huhhh?

Imagine Jean Claude Duvalier and Jean Bertrand Aristide sitting "kot a kot" (rib by rib, LOL...) I mean side by side, right next to each other!

Maybe I should go to Haiti to witness this historic moment...

What do you think?

This is 'PURE THEATRE' The Globe And Mail says...

Here's a clip...

In one of his first moves as Haiti's president-elect, Michel Martelly made a grand, and unusual gesture. He invited all of his country's living ex-presidents to his upcoming inauguration.

On one level, the idea of the recently returned Jean-Bertrand Aristide sitting beside his historic rival Jean-Claude Duvalier to mark a former carnival singer's rise to power, is pure theatre.

But to Haitians, the prospect of political enemies casting aside their differences for a common cause is appealing. And to Mr. Martelly (stage name Sweet Micky), presiding over such a scenario is even more so.

Analysts predict the 50-year-old dark-horse winner of Haiti's election will attempt to use this peculiar mix of showmanship and statesmanship to govern his troubled country.


What is your opinion of Aristide and Duvalier being invited to the presidential inauguration of Michel Martelly?

What purpose do you think this will serve?

My dear Jean Philippe,
I am very happy to hear your voice, as it is the voice of reason and engagement.

As to Duvalier jr/Aristide joining in, it is necessary that they present excuses to the People for their mischiefs, misgovernment and crimes against humanity.

Anyone born in Haiti considers himself a Haitian and a Haitian remains a Haitian all of his/her life.

Long ago when it became evident that in order to stay alive some Haitians had to move away from the country, it was not a move that was welcomed, but it was a move that was necessary.
