Thanks for your email.

I really appreciate your message to the new President.

Especially when you mention about Rwanda.

I am working for an NGO in Eastern DRC and I go to Rwanda on a regular basis.

William Evens Josma,

Having an army in Haiti was never the problem.

I echo the president elect words from his 1st TV interview by the Miami Herald, the problem was that the army wasn't utilized properly and they were exposed to crooked politicians who polluted their minds with blood money.

Dear Mr. President, Again congratulations for your new position.

Allow me to speak freely and express myself from the bottom of my heart.

First, Mr. President, if deep down you believe that you have been elected by Haitians who are in the ground, then you should understand the following messages they sent to you.

I think he did ok, also he either needs a translator or improve his english.

I don't want the same thing that happened with the dominican reporter to happen again.

But I wish you luck Mr President which means I wish myself luck, as a haitian, your success will be beneficial for all of us. I wanted Mrs Manigat to win, but that's history now, and would love to see you succeed.

May God bless

toay is a great day for Haitian people to have a serious person to lead them.

I want you to remember this day .it's an acte of God believe it or not because i knew this will happen that Haiti will know some better days lol.

by the way, the President ought to know that he can't lead this people with out asking God to help him it's impossible he must be careful of what i say if he ask God to help him, he will have success and he will be powerful than ever and he will be knolageable, God will show him what to do he will be in our story as the best president that we ever have his name will stay from generation to generation.

How important for us to understand when to speak when to be silent, with all the respect for President Martelly I believe he could have done better.

He need time to prepare before appear in those interview the president was under a lot of pressure.

First question was what is the plan for job when Haiti has a lot of people unemployed?
