Martelly's First Year In Office. Pass or Fail?

It's been one year since Michel Martelly became the president of Haiti. How is Haiti doing?

President Michel Martelly And Haiti Police Chief Mario Andresol

Would you give the president a PASS or FAIL grade for his first year in office?

I just read an article on the Miami Herald with the title "Haiti's President Martelly ends 1st year in office with a mixed record." It is a long text with lots of mixed emotions like the title says.

Yesterday there was an Op-ed in the Herald that ended with this statement.

"His political capital won't last long, however, unless Mr. Martelly changes course. Otherwise, Haitians will become disillusioned and Mr. Martelly will be seen as another failed leader in the tradition of Jean-Bertrand Aristide who never lived up to expectations." (read it here)

Question: In YOUR opinion... Your opinion... Did Martelly PASS or FAIL in his first year in office?

Why? Why not?

I think it's too early in the game for anyone to start talking about grading President Michel Martelly, because he had inherited a corrupted and devastating country which right now does not need criticism from both the left nor the right.

He is mandated to serve 5 years in power, without any interruption from our corrupted government which was under president Rene Preval and other previous government who love to sell our land to people who does not have our interest at heart.

Jean Pierre, I think there is a misunderstanding about the word thinking outside of the box meaning thinking on a different level, thinking differently from others on the same subject, thinking innovative whether or not others are in the same "boat" as you are. Thinking on a different wavelength is the

Martelli could have been a good president if he was like aristide to send people in the street to give pere lubrun.

this is the first time since duvalier leave the power that the country is breathing another good air. you want the country to stay the same way it was before or you want to put him down so you can go in the street stealling as well as killing people .Please my brother give the country a chance to breath.
