The Opposition in Haiti, an Eternal "Paka Pala," Journalist said.

The opposition in Haiti, for the most part, consists of people who will never win elections in the country. So they instead constitute an eternal opposition against everyone who in power so they can get a slice of the cake, says a journalist.

Most of these eternal opposition men and women in Haiti live only off politics, every time they are candidates for any post in Haiti, the people do not vote for them. So they go back to the other side nagging those in power until they get "yon ti moso gato" (a piece of the pie), Journalist Jean Ismael Valestin said on Radio Mega Thursday.

"Those who are in opposition with President Jovenel Moise today, they are the same ones who were in opposition in 2004. They they are the same ones who were in opposition in 2008, 2009, after the hunger riot," the journalist said.

"They are the sames ones who were in opposition in 2013 under Preval. And they are the same ones who came to power in another form"

"What do I mean by that?" The journalist asked.

"It is a fight for power."

"It is a fight, one would say, It would seem I have no chance of winning if I participate in the elections I will have a possibility to win, let me constitute myself into an eternal opponant, an eternal 'paka pala'. "
