Peter,
Opposition is not a negative in a democracy.

The president is not a dictator and needs to be challenged if a portion of the population don't agree with his policies.

What Martelly has to do, is acknowledge there concerns, compromise where possible and respectfully agree to disagree on issues they don't see eye to eye.

THIS IS A SETUP FOR PRESIDENT MARTELLY IF HE LETS GO OF THE PM LAMOTHE.

MARTELLY AND LAMOTHE ARE THE BEST TWO GREAT FRUITS THAT THE COUNTRY HAS EVER PRODUCED.

THE OPPOSITIONS WANT THE PRIME MINISTER TO RESIGN BECAUSE HE HAS CLEARLY PROVED WORTHY ENOUGH TO BE THE NEXT PRESIDENTS.

I don't care what "commission" has asked for the prime minister's resignation, it's obvious Haiti is still being tormented by the thugs in power.

It's time for them to go. It's time for the power and money mongers to get out. PM Lamothe has done nothing but good for Haiti and the government as a whole.

OMG. One more attempt by Martelly to deflect the Haitian peoples' disdain and contempt for him, and very specifically his lack of regard for the overwhelming majority of the country--the poor, the hungry, the unemployed, etc. He--very literally, with money or big cars--bought off all the senators and representatives except for the 6 senators in opposition.

Those 6 senators embody the hope these long-disenfranchised groups still have for their country.

And yet, the emperor continues to parade around with no clothes.
