Best of Haiti Parliamentary Election Coverage on Flashpoints

haiti-election-007Today on Flashpoints, we present a special encore of our Haiti coverage of recent parliamentary elections held this past August 9. We begin with political analysts Jocelyn Gaye in New York and Frantz Jerome in Florida with their predictions of the outcome of the elections six days before they were held. We then feature an interview with Brian Concannon of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti giving his views of the legitimacy of the elections. We end our encore presentation with an interview with Yvon Kernizan, a political activist who works closely with the Fanmi Lavalas party founded by former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
