Haiti Elections Delays - WHY - Will there be an election in 2013?

The hottest Haiti news topic these days is about ELECTIONS... Will the Haiti elections be held in 2013? What do you think is causing all the Haiti Election delays?


Haiti Elections Delayed

When you hear all the comments on Haitian radio, all of the faults fall on the back of Haitian president President Martelly... It always does (se toujou fot prezidan-an)... besides, the constitution states that the president has the obligation to insure that all the institutions of the state are working smoothly like a 'well-oiled machine'.

The constitution also assumes Haiti and its institutions are riding on paved roads!... "AssFault"... SMOOTH...

It's 2013, do you know where your country is?

Rosemond Pradel, former Secretary general of Haiti's provisional electoral council (CEP) says, recently said on the radio that the Executive branch is not in favor of holding elections.

Haitian Senator John Joel Joseph says Haitian president Martelly should resign and something else about holding general elections... I done remember exactly... But... He should resign?

SO Let me ask you:

  1. What is so complicated about holding elections in Haiti?
  2. What do you think is causing all the Haiti Election delays?

I am hearing somethings about using some law from previous constitutions to hold the elections, Why not use the current Constitution?

Wait a minute... If my memory serves me correctly, it all started with the amended constitution... It was supposed to be signed (is that the right word?) by the last president of Haiti, but the document that was agreed upon in parliament was not the one officially published by 'Le Moniteur' (The official Haitian government nespaper)

Would that have something to do with all the delays with the elections?

Recall... Haiti had a Conseil Electoral Provisoire (CEP), then the new 'screwy & disputed' constitution called for a Conseil Electoral PERMANENT (CEP), then while making the switch from Provisoire to Permanent, Tout senateur voye pye (SVP), and we ended up with the CTCEP, I forgot that that means... Oh Yeah, "College Transitoire du Conseil Electoral Permanent" who are now supposed to hold the elections.

Then there's the paperwork... from parliament to president, talks of delays, sa ki pa voye dokiman ale... sa ki pa retounen dokiman... etcetero... etcetera...

With all of the things I just said, there were fights and disagreements in between... Conspiracies, joure, pale anpil, afe pasport, depite arete... sak Haitian sa ki pa Haitien... Comission d'enguette sou commision d'enquette... Revocation... Resigation... Lobey... and all of these things take time!

Am I confusing you? Haitian politics is a confusing topic... Se bagay ki pou baw tet vire wi pitit... LOL...

By now... You probably forgot what the hell we're talking about by now don't you?

QUESTIONS:

  1. What is so complicated about holding elections in Haiti?
  2. What do you think is causing all the Haiti Election delays?

REPLY with your comments... Oh TRY... LOL...

Sipn says...

Lack of experience and leadership throw the political priority into disarray however, the Executive need to compromise with lawmakers to fulfill such democratic obligation.

In case the president is unwilling to organize the elections, which is a part of his mandate, the houses can recommend a vote to replace him, but a timing factor is running against the lawmakers.

In the upcoming months there will be no houses due to their expiration
