LESPWA and LAVALAS

Have we turned a new chapter in the history of the Lavalas movement, symbolized by the election of René Préval as President of Haiti, as leader of the LESPWA political party?

It would appear that certain individuals in René Préval's inner circle of advisers are also fiercely anti-Aristide. IF this information proves to be correct, do you think that a public reconciliation of Haiti's two most prominent leaders and their political parties is an essential step for the defragmentation of our society? If yes, how would this come about? If not, can we at least look forward to an era of close collaboration/cooperation between these distinct political sectors?

Just read this post. I don't think it's an issue of party. It is much more a matter of "wing" within the same party, basically the same ideology. The Preval wing tends to be more cautious, it seems, based on the precedent of Preval's presidency (1996 -2001), whereas Aristide's wing is much more daring in terms of what they want or expect.

Less caution from the Aristide wing, much more zealous and much more interested in a system where the executive branch has greater power. That's how I see it but still, we don't know. We have to wait until 2 to 3 years after Preval has been in power to decide whether the man I believe Preval is and what he represents is accurate.

Haitian politicians are so deceitful, one has to always be cautious.
