Haiti Elections - BCEN turns Sophia Martelly into an APATRIDE, PM Evans Paul Says

Haiti prime minister Evans Paul says BCEN, the National Bureau of electoral disputes, has just turned first lady Sophia Martelly into a citizen without a nation, a stateless person, an APATRIDE, just like the men and women of Haitian decent in the Dominican Republic, with their decision to ban her from the the upcoming senatorial elections on the basis that she is not Haitian...

Compare that to Sophia Martelly... She renounced her US Nationality and now Haiti is saying she is NOT Haitian...

This is a very serious problem, Evans Paul said, much more serious than one might think... For her to participate or not in the elections is not the even question...

What do you think about that?
