Si los diez millones de ciudadanos en el país de Haití y los cuatro millones de la diáspora, dispersos en todo el mundo, pensó por un momento, acerca de lo que va a suceder en la realidad, en el "campo" de la política haitiana ....
So let’s imagine a beautiful country but ruined, shaken and broken by an earthquake, located somewhere underneath the sun but submerged, these days, by tropical seasonal storms.
On such a place, has arisen recently, at the helm of affairs of state, a new leader, a new man of his own time : there, a President has been chosen!
If he is a good communicator, a musician and business entrepreneur, an energetic, determined and courageous former-performing-artist, every one knows for sure that He has goodwill and is full of determination, and ready for action to venture openly and forthrightly to the rescue of his country.
Therefore no doubt that this president offers Hope to his people as a possibility.
The President is also a family man. At his side, an enterprising wife, faithful sensible, practical, reliable, talented also. Capable of assuming successful projects: she is duly recognized in this area by many.
We have seen it recently, this woman is not only able to stay the course in all circumstances, but also to engage without delay on her own agenda. At the same time, supportive of her husband’s vision for the greater good of the country on all projects, she is part of the challenge and works towards its achievement.
Martelly’s clear objectives are necessary for Haiti, this makes general consensus. Among these are:
- Change or abandonment of the archaic political status-quo and corruption;
- promotion of civic responsibility in collaboration with diaspora, and, what is considered to be the grand project: free education for some 500 000 children in the country
He is considered not rapid enough in organising a capable staff. These critics, however true, can be/are harsh for the President especially when the local population as a whole has great expectations while living in a this state of ultimate distress. No one can wait. There is no margin for error.
As for the U.S.A. and allies confronting world monetary crisis, are n’t they expected to feel truly concerned and even worried about the new momentum.
To be real, suppose that additionally the President’s position places him ‘face a face’ with a parliament (inheritance of previous dysfonctional governments) of which the majority is presumed-really-or falsely hostile?
Nothing new in Democracy. In France, in a similar situation cohabitation which is power sharing is put in place. Obviously In Haiti the political culture and political competition can make it slow to establish a workable agenda.
According to Jacques Chirac, in his recent publication: ‘Le temps presidentiel volume II’, the ‘President’ remains in all circonstances the only guarantor of national unity. But that is France or is it? Yes as a matter of fact, here, one can find some similitude in definition.
In a democratic spirit, every group has their particular function or role to play. If the President is to be the conceptor/promoter for the nation, on the other hand, the Haitian Parliament , -respecting the spirit of the 87 Haitian Constitution-, would be required to impose on to the President the right choice of a Prime Minister capable not only to bear the weight of good-governance but also to alleviate all deficiencies presidential or institutional.
If the Constitution requires that the Prime Minister be capable of forming and leading his government ministers efficiently (once ratified by Parliament of course), then, it seems that what remains is the right decision or a simple but important matter of trust from every group, every citizen of Haiti .
Experience is an asset for members of both chambers: Yes members of this body are capable-men in their own political sphere, "self-made men" or graduates with knowledge of the real management of politics on the grounds.
It is believed that these contenders can appreciate the latest evolution of the situation and comprehend that time has come, for change is finally decided, desirable, expected.
The Parliament relies on Haitians as a whole - which they represent on the political scene- and in turn the Haitians await commitment from them.
These days Parliamentarians who agreed to concretise the hopes of the country, have engaged into careful study of the Prime Minister’s application for the post.
The parliamentarians are carrying their civic responsibility, and this is because the reality is such that parliamentarians carry very high, them too -and who would suggest the contrary would be wrong - carry high, a banner of love for Haiti - the same one which the most humble of their fellow citizens cherish.
Yes, love prevails, the good of the majority is an idea making its way across Haiti. In fact, to be honest, nobody should claim to love his country (Haiti) more that another one. The heart of man is far more generous than expected and its the same in every individual. Mistrust definitely leads to wrong.The search for the 'common good' is not a trophy that some can grap for its onw decoration: Every Haitian who loves Haiti thereto commits on its own capacity. Today more that yesterday the greater good of each and every one is at the heart of all. Good example, stimulates.
Prime Minister Daniel Rouzier has been introduced by the new chief of state, as a possible PM. For Rouzier is a business man of experience, and administrator, an economist, a financier. He is know to be a quiet man of strong character and determination , has shown talent and applied his analytic mind on planified projects and enterprises.. Man of conviction, and moral, decided to fight mismanagement, Rouzier seems to be loyal to his own personal line, and willing to dedicate himself in what he believes to be a quasi-priestly mission: He wants to see change, he will not hide for improvement of the system is his goal. Sounds definitely as an honest commitment!
If the ten million citizens in the country of Haiti over the four million of the diaspora - dispersed world-wide--thought for a moment, about what is happening for real, in the 'field' of Haitian politics: They would see concrete possibilities.
