Photo: Sweet Micky, On Foot, Campaigning at the NYC Labor Day Parade 2010

We have just received a photo of Haitian presidential candidate Michel Martelly aka Sweet Micky campaigning at the West Indian Labor Day Parade 2010.

Right behind him is Fugees Rapper Pras Michel.

We've been told that they are on foot and sweet micky is metting and greeting the crowd; a bold campaign move by singer turned politician Michel Martelly.

Usually Sweet micky is on top of a float with the crows below chanting and dancing but today he is wearing a suit and is on the ground...

Sweet Micky has been very silent since for the past couple of weeks since the final list of candidates have been released by Haiti's Electoral council (CEP)


How do you feel about this move by Sweet Micky to campaign at the Labor Day parade in Brooklyn NY???

Thank you Carnegie Labatte ( for the photos

I dont personally know Mr Martelly, but only through his music and the many interviews that are on the web. I came to the conclusion that this guy might be what Haiti need. Since 1986 when Baby Doc left, Haiti has known many intellect that helped her arrived at this level because of greed.

I see in Michel martelly a patriot with lots of love for the country.

As an artist did he do and said raw things, yes that was what his fans wanted and that is how he made his money.

hello everyone, sweet mikey is a nice guy but to be president you need to have moral and need to think aboout the consequences.

like the proverb say" if you cant do the time dont do the crime" sweet mikey did not think about the moral part by say all these durty words and by showed his "ass" in peoples face. now his paying back the society by cant be president now that would his consequences.

im sorry for him because the same place he was showing his ass on top of the truck that the same place his marching for president for me thats a no no. his lesson would be for thee generation who are thinking about thir futur always think before you act because the consequence always more expensive or always cost more for any little stupid thing.

candidat Michele martelly discussed several issues that impair the devellopement of Haiti:reduce crimes and held managers accountable for their functions, provide education for all and required kids to go to shool, create several health clinic for the people who can not afford, enforce sanitation code to kept the country clean, have emmergency teams that are trained to responded to emmergency to helps the people, fight corruption at all level.

unify the country as one haiti for the nation.
