Five former presidential candidates endorse Michel Martelly

Candidate Michel Martelly is now backed by five of the former Haiti presidential candidates who were defeated in round one.

In a joint statement, defeated candidates Josette Bijou, Wilson Jeudy, Genard Joseph, Chavanne Jeune and Eric Smarki Charles praised Michel Martelly for the "spirit of openness" he had shown in his campaign, BBC news reports.

The five candidates said Michel Martelly is the candidate most likely to promote democracy and development in Haiti.

He continues full force on his journey despite all the negativity thrown at him, and is fully commited to the people.

He portrays a rare passion, and drive for a future leader.
