The  underlying problem is that the interim government, installed
after the  violent overthrow of Jean-Bertrand Aristide two years

Furthermore when Baker stated to the Miami Herald last Monday,that for the
good of the country Préval has to be stopped at all costs.Reasonable minds
would  have realized that his 8% are not enough even by adding the 12% of
Manigat.An astute politician at the time should have known it was the time to

time for him to embrace Préval and leverage his 8 % instead he gave  chance
the supporters of Aristide to do the leverage.They forced Préval to  use the
Aristide fraction to become president.By the way based on my analysis  Baker

counted Préval would have won but I am not  sure if Baker wouldn't have been
