A controversial carnival singer who reinvented himself into a polished political outsider is poised to become Haiti’s next president, according to preliminary election results announced Monday. Michel “Sweet Micky’’ Martelly garnered 67 percent of the vote to 31 percent for longtime opposition leader and former first lady Mirlande Manigat, the Provisional Electoral Council said.
The Haitians, in a flawed election which excluded by law both Haiti's most popular politician and Haiti's most popular political party, elected an inexperienced joke candidate ala Jesse Ventura or Arnold Schwarzenegger.
We can expect similar results.
There is still no hope for Haiti.
