Candidates online presence varies


Published

A search for the two presidential candidates in the Haitian runoff next Sunday 20th March revealed very different results. 

Mirlande Manigat the frontrunner and seventy years old had one presence on an immediate search, this was for her Facebook page which can be found here:

Media savvy Michel ‘Sweet Mickey’ Martelly who is fifty years old, as you would expect, was much easier to find.  He has a very neat website, although it lacks much political content.  He also has a Facebook page and Twitter site all of which are easy to find.  All three sites can be found here:
