The perfect candidate in Haiti for the next presidential election

One beautiful morning at the sunrise the Haitian sky opened and an extraordinary human being fall from the above with a miracle formula to turn Haiti around and to bring the positive change that Haitian people really deserve, of course he/she would have been the perfect candidate; unfortunately that can happen only in a nice dream or in a high budget movie filming in 3D which is a little bit closer to the reality. This is to illustrate that perfect candidate is far from being real and probably never will, also Haiti can’t count on any of the hero of the independence none of them can rise from the death to run; however the candidates that are running for the highest office in this electoral race are real, and one of them will be selected or elected as the next president of Haiti despite of any circumstance.
In a country the rich are exploiting the poor; the people with power are abusing their authority and neglecting the weak, the politicians can’t be trusted, the churches institution are failing in their mission, 85% percent of the population are illiterate, the establishments governmental are ineffective. Where do you expect to find a perfect Haitian candidate? If all the entities stated above are incoherent, it is almost impossible to produce capable and honest man and woman to be accountable.  Somehow every one of the candidates is tie to one of the rambling unit listed previously.  Maybe the perfect candidate can come from in the Diasporas, again this is not the case most the Haitian living overseas are somehow disconnected with the Haitian reality or they are over influences by the foreign country they are living in which make them believe they can export change to Haiti. Basically the perfect candidate is out of question, the question that needs to be asked is there any capable candidate with the will to work in the interest of the Haitian people and the country? It is a fact there are candidates with great academic background, however they have little or no experience in managing public institution and the few with the experience are not too credible.

Hypothetically the perfect candidate should have been a fusion like someone with the popularity of Jean Bertrand Aristide, some of the Rene G. Preval political strategy (Since 1986 he is the only one who served to full term of his presidency), the knowledge academic of Lesly F. Manigat, the dynamism and vision of the only Haitian King (Henri 1st) Henri Christophe, some of the disciplinary attitude of the first Haitian President Jean Jacques Dessalines, and the approach of Dumarsais Estime.

Is it possible for any candidate to be perfect? This is just a question that you need respond for yourself; as far as truth Haiti doesn’t need a perfect candidate it is only looking someone with the drive and the integrity to reduce poverty, to increase stability politic and economic so every Haitian can have their dignity back, eradicate corruption to promote a social and economical balance for the masses. Among all these candidates in this electoral race if there were really serious about moving the country from the mud of misery to a better place they would put their personal ambition behind to call upon each other to unify for a greater cause, a Haitian restoration, a country modernization, the diasporas total integration to utilize their intellectual and economic resources.

10 big questions for the Haitian presidential candidates

  1. Who are you and tell us what have you done in the last two decades to prove that you can be the right person for the job in these crucial moments of Haiti, and where will your campaign fund come from, as all of us know the Haitian people don’t even have money to cover most basic of their needs?    
  2. What will be the first measure you will take if you are the person elected for the president of Haiti?
  3. Who will be on your team, are they qualify to help you execute this big task you will have waiting ahead you, and how can the Haitian people trust them because the majority of the teams who came with any president in the last two hundred years have been stealing and abusing the power ?
  4. With a non professional police force, and inadequate resources what is you plan to securitize the country, and will consider the possibility of rebuilding a new Army, because according to the Haitian constitution the republic of Haiti is protected by two arms forces the police and the Army?
  5. What is you plan for a Haitian economy almost nonexistent, and how will create employment in a country with no infrastructure whatsoever?
  6. What is your plan for education in a country 85% percent of the people can’t read and write, and after the earthquake of January 12, 2010 most of the schools in the capital have been destroyed and the rest of the country didn’t have enough school already?
  7. Constitutionally in Haiti exile is prohibited will you consider of letting coming back in the country the two former Presidents of Haiti Jean Claude Duvalier and Jean Bertrand Aristide?
  8. How will you integrate all the political parties in your government, as we all know if you don’t include them in the power they will destabilize it, how will plan to stay on top of this situation?
  9. What will be you diplomatic relation with the US, Canada and France, since they have been so involve in the Haitian affair, and in the recent years Haiti have been developing a very good relationship with Cuba and Venezuela, but we know the United States of America don’t really deal with these two country how are you going to make this beneficial for Haiti?
  10. Last not least after the earthquake the former US president Bill Clinton has been actively involved in Haiti and consider his history with it, in 1994 he brought the former President Jean Bertrand Aristide back to the power after a military coup with 20,000 American soldiers. Now in with a new government on the power what will be his role and what will be your relationship with him?
