This last request to all political parties to unite, to counter all forms of skullduggery in the elections of November 28, 2010. Wilnet Content, strongly criticizes the immoral behavior of representative of INITE , that oath terror in Jacmel and use, the dialectic of arms in order to win elections.
Richard Desir, a representative of the party "Renmen Ayiti", of Presidential candidate, Jean Henry Céant, denounced the relocation of some polling stations usually placed in the downtown of Jacmel, and currently located in the locality of Breman, east of Jacmel. "All of these polling stations will be located at the National School of Breman about 10 meters from the residence of Senator Joseph Lambert, coordinator of the National Platform INITE, where voters will not be safe during the elections day, because of the commando of INITE [under the orders of the Senator Lambert], which has already begun to sow terror in the city". Despite all the intimidation and acts of banditry from the partisans close to the power in place, Mr Richard Desiré asks the population to go to vote on November 28th.
For its part, Adonis Noé, the representative of the party "Repon Peyizan", party of Joseph Michel Martelly, presidential candidate, said that this joint press conference, reflects the process of learning democracy. This last, denounced the change of the members of the BV who is done by the staff of the departmental electoral Office (BED) and the distribution of money, to some election observers, to buy their conscience. Adonis Noé asks the authorities of the country, to assume their responsibility in this matter.
Note that, representatives of political parties participating in the press conference, announced that they had to call in military support of the former Haitian Armed Forces (FADH) and revoked police officers of the Haitian National Police (PNH), in order to thwart the criminal acts of the INITE partisans.
