Read up on the island before you post. Prosperity has been a gift, given to the Indians
on the other side of the island. Haitians need to give up Candomblé, because it has caused them one disaster after another.
They may have benefited, letting Wyclef run for the presidency. He would have made mistakes short-term, but I think he may have grown into the position like Regan but on a Caribbean scale. Also, it would have proved they can get past safe hate and put someone in office, who represented 90% of the population phonetically. No, they voted another Jean-Claude Duvalier into office, so they are suffering the same fate.
I wouldn't be surprised, if he thinks his ancestors are the Indians. In March-April 2012 Martelly was accused of corruption, with allegations that during and after the 2010 election he had accepted $2.6m in bribes to ensure that a Dominican Republic construction company would continue to receive contracts under his Presidency. Martelly denied the allegations. Companies owned or controlled by Félix Bautista had received no-bid contracts worth $200m, awarded by former Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive.
Hundreds of Haitians have taken to the streets of capital Port-au-Prince to protest higher living costs in the country, calling for President Michel Martelly to resign.
Martelly is accused of breaking promises to cover the cost of school tuition and failing to do enough to alleviate the suffering of the Caribbean nation's poor.
"Martelly is wasting the meager resources of the country to buy luxury vehicles and for international trips that don't bring anything to the country," Edner Rosier, one of the organisers of Sunday's protest, said.
The demonstrators, mainly young people from poor neighbourhoods, marched through the shanty towns of the city before assembling near the presidential palace, where police had been deployed.
Martelly has faced a number of protests over the difficult living conditions in the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation.
Opposition groups have recently organised similar anti-government rallies in various cities to denounce the cost of living and to demand compensation for the victims of the cholera epidemic, which has claimed more than 7,000 lives in Haiti.
Last month the government created a commission to work with businesses and farmers' groups in a bid to stabilise food prices.
