The Campaign for Haiti’s next president heads to South Florida this Sunday, as Port-au-Prince-based Radio Television Caribes (RTVC) and Friends of Haiti hosts the next presidential debate at North Miami Senior High, starting 4 p.m.
Town Hall debates have also recently been held for the Diaspora community in New Jersey and Washington D.C. The D.C. debate came under some criticism due to the organizers’ decision to hold the event in English. But the South Florida debate, assures organizer and Friends of Haiti representative Magalie Theodore, “is going to be in Creole.”
So far, 10 of the 54 candidates currently pursuing office have been confirmed to participate in the event, including: Mario Andresol, Charles Henri Baker, Steven Benoit, Fred Brutus, Aviol Fleurant, Eric Jean-Baptiste, Moise Jean-Charles, Steeve Khawly, Samuel Madistin, and Michelet Nestor.
