Haiti’s Interim President Jocelerme Privert’s Ties to Washington
The Nevada Primary: Race to the Finish for Republicans and Democrats
Clinton’s handpicked president of Haiti, Michel Martelly, prohibited by
law to seek reelection after his five-year term, unwillingly left
office Feb. 7, leaving behind a leadership vacuum and a nation mired in
poverty, corruption, political chaos, protests and partisan violence.
Haiti’s Parliament named Jocelerme Privert, president of the National
Assembly, interim president on Feb. 14, and immediately he began talking
about putting the nation on the right track. But Kim Ives, editor of Haïti Liberté, reports that many are concerned about Privert’s ties to Washington.
Feb. 20 primary elections in Nevada netted wins for Donald Trump and
Hillary Clinton, a fatal blow to Jeb Bush’s candidacy, and
incontrovertible proof that race matters in America. Leid Stories
