President Martelly is a political novice, Is that the problem?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT - Every time I read the news about the political situation in Haiti, the media keep saying that Martelly is a political novice. Is this the reason for the political stalemate in Haiti?

For Rent - Haiti National Palace

Haitians have been complaining for a long time that Haitian politics and corruption are the a core problem in Haiti. Haitian politicians have no goals for Haiti, short term or longterm. Many argue that the average Haitian politician only cares about their pockets.

My question is:

If expert politicians brought Haiti where it is now, is it GOOD or BAD to be a novice politician in Haiti?

Who are the EXPERT politicians of Haiti?

Have the EXPERT Haitian politicians made Haiti better or worse?

With all due respect to the above comment, i dont think MM is the problem.

We have 16 terrorists who just hijacked the haitian people.

These guys dont think country, they realize if they approve any Martelly's pick for Prime Minister, they will not be able to cash in every month.

This is the issue and i do believe that these so called Senators have an agenda even before Martelly took

I know one thing for sure, and it is the power of intention.

President Michel Martelly has good intentions, and is street smart.

He has been helping people, but never pat himself on the back and is very generous toward the poor. He has good intentions, and will succeed.

Former President Luiz Ignacio Da Silva (Lula) had plenty of experiences before he became president of Brazil.

It is true he did not graduate from high school but, often people failed to realized or mentioned that the man Lula was working for years in organizing workers in Brazil.

Additionally, he lost several presidential elections before he finally won one. That allowed him to reform himself, moderate his views (remember Aristide) and sharpen his message and his leadership skills.Some of Martelly backers use the Lula example as an excuse to support him. They were wrong then, they are wrong now and will be wrong in the future.

I beleive now president Martelly is the problem.

He ascended to the presidency of Haiti without any academic preparations and polical experiences.

He is ill-prepared, arrogant and talkative.
