Haiti — On Monday April 4th, the Haitian government electoral committee announced that Michel Martelly won the Presidency with 67% of the overall vote and will officially take office May 15th. Upon his election he thanked the Haitian people for reclaiming their fate by believing and trusting in him with their future.

Wyclef Jean was with Martelly when he got the news and said: “The Haitian youth have spoken and Michel Martelly has been elected President. It’s time for every Haitian, poor or not, to dream again. It’s time for every Haitian in the Diaspora to reclaim his or her heritage & country.”

Pras who supported Martelly when he initiated his candidacy said: “There are no words for this historical event but we must not be intimidated by the work ahead of us.”

Jimmy Rosemond, who was instrumental in the final rally to push voters to come out by organizing a concert with Busta Rhymes said:  “Haiti’s rich history is now a current event. The former government never asked for people in the Diaspora to help but Martelly has extended his hand. We are Haitian and we want to help our country.”

Haitian-American boxer Andre Berto, the WBC Champion, responded when he heard the news by remarking: “Congrats to Michel Martelly! With him in office, we have someone who can really identify with the young people that are the majority there. I see change coming to Haiti.”
