Editorial comment. Late last year this video was making the rounds of all the Haitian news sites, but a few months before Haiti’s presidential elections it was scrubbed from You Tube.  Luckily, the video was copied by the British newspaper The Telegraph.  Take advantage of this rare chance to view it.

A video purporting to show Haiti’s new president Michel ‘Sweet Micky’ Martelly dancing in a bikini has been posted on YouTube.

The shaven-headed performer, who has no previous political experience, was chosen as the anti-establishment outsider to put an end to the decades of corruption in the country.

Mr Martelly, 50, an iconoclastic entertainer who has admitted occasionally smoking crack cocaine in the 1980s, faces the huge challenge of trying to rebuild country in crisis.

Hundreds of thousands of people still live in squalid camps after last year’s earthquake, reconstruction has stalled and unemployment is running at 50 per cent.

Following his victory with 68 per cent of the vote, thousands of supporters danced in the streets and climbed on cars with reports of automatic rifles being fired into the sky.

Mr Martelly is the son of an oil company executive and attended college in the US. He has promised to counter Haiti’s dependency on international handouts and also wants to bring back the military, which was disbanded in 1995 after a history of coups and abuses.
