KREYOL: Haiti - Thomas Adams, Depatman Deta USA di: Poukisa n-ap fè election 3 Tou? Fè election 2 Tou pito, sa ka ekonomize peyi a anviron 30 million dola... Misye sijere KEP a pa fè election nan mwa Aout, fè li nan mwa Oktob ak Desanm, sa ka ba yo tan pou mete machine elektoral la sou pye... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Instead of holding 3 elections tours this year, Thomas Adams things it would better to hold two election tours...

Thomas Adams says: Have people come out and vote in October and December; drop the vote scheduled for August...

For the US diplomat, Le Nouveliste reports, it would only be a bonus for Haiti. The elections would cost about thirty million dollars less and it would give more time to the Electoral Council to prepare the machine.

There is one big question to this theory... Who is listening???

What do you think about that?
