Fanmi Lavalas: Haiti's largest political party shows no lack of leadership talent

Haiti - Port au Prince — In the face of foreign press, Haiti's largest political party had a meeting today where many of the emerging leaders shared information and planned for the future of the party after five years of turmoil.

At a combined meeting of the communications and mobilizations commissions,

On February 28th thousands of Fanmi Lavalas activists took to the street of Port au Prince demanding the return of President Jean Betrand Aristide and marched up Route Delmas to put pressure on the illegal actions of the CEP (elections counsel).

Many from the international press conjectured that Fanmi Lavalas itself would have difficulty unifying its forces after a few top veterans decided to accept an easier path to power. Possibly it was the actions of the CEP in denying the right of the party for inclusion in the upcoming elections that led to the confusion, perhaps.

Tomorrow there will be, yet another, mobilization to protest the actions of the CEP at the Palais Justice as Fanmi Lavalas is taking the CEP to the courts over their latest actions.

At the meeting Rene Civil talked about preparing the proposals that will be presented to the UN delegation arriving next week.

Everything that Fanmi Lavalas does Jean Betrand Aristide is consulted. Even though the former President remains in exile in South Africa it was reported that it is always done with his consent. "There is no division in Fanmi Lavalas," says Civil, "the leadership of President Aristide allows them to deal with the divergence.

"On the other hand, we are working on the formation of future members of the organization. We are reinforcing the organization and at the same time we are reinforcing the leadership of President Aristide. Thanks to talents of the members of the organizations and the militants of Fanmi Lavalas we will become stronger. Fanmi Lavalas is united around President Aristide. With this unity we are demanding the return of President Aristide."
