CORRUPT MARTELLY POLITICAL PARTY (PHTK) ONLY TO WIN HAITI ELECTION IS FRAUD AND VIOLENCE
Diplomats, human rights groups and witnesses say the Haitian government is methodically stifling dissent in the prelude to this weekend’s national elections oct 25th, increasing taxes, intimidation to opposition supporters, jailing political opponents and possibly killing a few activists, part of a broader pattern of repression, especially during election time.
Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the American government and the World Bank, two of its biggest donors, should investigate potential leaks in the aid system and allegations that the corrupt Martelly government is manipulating food aid to reward political allies and literally starve out political opposition.
Haiti backsliding is a problem across the globe, despite the money, effort and diplomatic capital spent on democratic reform. Haiti just completed its first legislative election in 4 years under corrupt Martelly, but many analysts say the previous election, in Aug 9th, was a complete chaos.
Everyone knew before the election on August 9, that President Martelly’s party was far behind. Not one poll showed the PHTK party to be leading. Even the voters claimed that they will never vote for the PHTK party because of the incessant corruption.
Manipulation of the votes was always suspected in the recent Haitian elections .The campaign chief, Antonio Sola was paid $3.5 million of tax payer money to sway voters towards the PHTK party.
No one from the government has refuted these allegations because most likely they are true. There is not a single chance that the PHTK party could win election on of 25th unless they used fraud and violence. Unfortunately in Haiti, everyone is afraid to challenge the corrupt government. Journalists are afraid to ask questions because they fear for their lives. President Martelly and his clan would not hesitate to make anyone disappear. So polls in Haiti are meaningless and a waste of taxpayer money. With people like President Martelly running the government, we really do not need any enemies.
Haiti will never ever change because corruption is inbred in us. The nation is rock bottom not because of foreigner’s aid but because of people like Martelly. Until he leaves office we Haitians are stuck. The only thing Martelly has done for the country is he has made himself look like the biggest Mafioso in the world- in other words he has made a fool out of all Haitians by stealing every penny right in front of our eyes.
However, Martelly party PHTK only chance to win Sunday election Oct 25th is FAUD AND VIOLENCE.
