  1. felicitation Mr le Dr leslie Manigat pour sa bravoure et le courage pour de nous deliberer dans ce jeu tic -tac . Nous sommes pres d’affronter ce travail dont il est question , parce que ce pays a besoin un homme de cerveau , un homme qui sait comment resoudre et comment construire.
    Un president qu’on est assoiffé comme un poumon qui a besoin de l’oxigène pour vivre .

  2. Si la tete n’est pas bonne les pieds n’ont pas de grande importance pour cela on a besoin un president capable de parler, de nous representer pour les haitiens qui vont à la recherche d’un morceau de connaissances, un travail parce que dans notre pays ceux ci est l’or .
    pour l’humiliation des haitiens dans le monde surtout en rep Dominicaine que le president Rene preval fait semblant qu’il n a pas vu et qu’il na pas entendu ,rendez -vous 2011.. 8094172337
