No election is without flaw, but the real reason why these old fashion politicians are losing is because politics in Haiti changed under Martelly.

He modernized it. You have to campaign and convince the people to rally behind you without bribes.

Offer them something good that can tangibly change their lives and deliver on it! It is no longer ok to just wake up one day, decide you want to get rich quick and run for President based upon your PAP contacts, your good looks and nice French.

You must give the people a reason to support you.

DO not tell me about the chimeres on the ground.

You will always have that in a poor/uneducated country.

Hell we have that in the US where poor white trash vote against their interest all the time. I am referring to true votes without bribe.

The kind that Martelly got and the kind that JOvenel is gathering on the street.

If you want to run for office, you should have been doing something good for the people for them to buy what you are selling on the stump.

Also, it is time to revise the government structure.

If everyone wants to be president, give them the feel of it, by electing governors for each department.

THat way people get to see exactly what kind of work these elected officials can do for your little department and have something to judge them on for the bigger job of President! 5YEARS IS NOT ENOUGH...a good sitting president should be able to double his term for sake of continuity, but no more than 10 years.

We vote for people en masse and then cry "aba" the next day. WE ARE the problem...Haitians are wired to self-destruct.
