Haiti: Elections OR No Elections - The never-ending lack of TRUST in the Haitian Political System

I kept on asking myself why is it that there are no Haitian drama series on Television in Haiti... Then I realize, the biggest drama series in Haiti is Haitian politics... Every time the word "ELECTIONS" hits the airwaves in Haiti, "tout peyi a tet anba" (the country is upside down)...

Haiti Elections - Ballot Box

Li Atik saa an Kreyol...

Every Election season in Haiti, questions are raised:

  • Will there be an election?
  • Why should I trust the electoral council (CEP)?
  • Why is the International community sticking their nose where it don't belong?
  • Why don't we just start over again?
  • They are trying to prevent free and fair elections so because they just want to remain in power.
  • He is trying to control the Electoral council so he can win?

Let me tell you... Haitian politics is such a dramatic issue in Haiti that it leaves no room for other types of news to be reported... Everything else is: "Oh... By the way... Here is what else is happening..."

In Haitian politics, NOBODY trues NOBODY...

I am not sure this proper English but you understand my point... NOBODY trues NOBODY... The winner never wins fair and square (by that I mean nobody believes him/her) and the looser never admits that he lost, Nope... Se vòlè yo vole eleksyon an...

So my question is: If there is absolutely no trust in the Haitian political system, how can there be free and fair elections?

I already know what's going to happen: Whoever wins in the upcoming elections will be contested... Who ever looses will join the next opposition asking the winner to "Rashe manyok ou!"

What do you think about this?
