Can anyone say hubris???? Mr. Jean's initial response to accept the decision indicated a certain maturity. His latest gambit to challenge the decision is certain to cause upheaval and further damage to the fragile process, demonstrating that his ego and ambition trump his true concern for the welfare of his country. I had bet that he'd behave this way and unfortunately he didn't disappoint. HOW SAD

Come on now. The people of Haiti would never vote in a foreign citizen with no history of leadership or known ability to to the most important job in the Nation.

What Nation would do such a stupid thing?

It is a difficult decision for Jean's team to accept but if the voice of reason and wisdom could be heard: It is leave it alone for now and prepare for the next big move. May Jean know that Haiti loves him and certainly will give him a chance to contribute at the highest level once all the conditions are right for him and the country. Now, Keep doing what you do best for Haiti and keep working towards your goals. Rome was not built in one day. In a short time, you will make the cut. Keep loving your country and keep fine tuning your plans. The country is taking notes and will reward you in due time. Be wise and humble. Money will not buy every thing. Things will happen in their seasons.
