Listen Guys! the president of haiti already nominated before the election occured- The only problem is, the Government is afraid of the haitian population-if they nonimate that president- that president is Guy Celestin- Believe me, why do you think, they wait so long to say Guy Celestin is the president- is because YAP RANGER CABAN"N YO POU ANPIL DESORDE PA FET NAN PEYI A- beleive me he is going to be the president- that's what Preval wants?

In my view, if the recount of the ballot takes more time than anticipated, and has run over Mr. Preval's allotted time in office, they will either allow the president to remain in office for a longer period; in accordance to some legal decree or they will appoint a provisory government to manage the affairs of the country until they can set up a new election calendar.

However, it is my belief that there will be no new tabulation - if any fraud was committed, this would so well covered, any detection will be virtually impossibe.

We may have to show Preval the exit door, hopefully he will have a suitcase ready to go with him. Enough is enough, February 7th should be Preval's
