Anoki Communications announces that this weekend Dr. Kesler Dalmacy unveiled his pledge for Haiti. If elected, Dr.
Dalmacy will be the second physician-president of Haiti, a country stricken by poverty and natural disasters. Francois
Duvalier, the dictator who ruled the country for over a decade, was Haiti's first physician-president.
On Friday October 16, in the New York medical office where he practiced
medicine for over 29 years, Dr. Dalmacy met with reporters to answer
questions about his campaign. In his own words: "In May of this year, when I
announced my intention to run in the 2015 presidential election, I knew that
the race would be a difficult and complex one. With 54 candidates to split
among voters, I hope that the candidate who will earn the maximum votes will
truly deserve it."
To the question some voters have about why they should vote for him? He
rephrased the question to himself: "Why am I seeking to become the next
president of Haiti, and why should you vote for me? Let me assure you that
being a candidate in any presidential election makes no sense to me unless
the aim is to inspire, to build, to revive and recreate."
"In a nutshell, I am seeking the presidency to recreate Haiti and offer a better future to each and every Haitian citizen;
and you should vote for me because I am the one candidate who can guarantee you what you, Haitian voters should
desire from a president: A Haiti where every Haitian citizen will feel secured at home, in their workplace, and on the
streets. I want each and everyone of you to have access to clean water, to free education, employment, better
healthcare and sanitation. I also want every citizen to get a job to provide for their family, to have the possibility to
social advancement, and each person's merit to be recognized. But we cannot and will not get there without crossing
"It is a fact that most of us, Haitians, are not looking to create a radically different Haiti. I learned from you that all you
want is a Haiti in which today's obstacles are removed so that you can have hopes and realize dreams for yourselves
and mostly for your children."
"The New Haiti I am pledging will be first and foremost a
secured country for each citizen to live in, dwell in, and
to prosper in. A Haiti, where you can exchange your
ideas without incurring blames, and where everyone's
ideas and thoughts are valued."
"The New Haiti I am pledging to create for you will be a
country where each citizen will value and respect
themselves and others. It will be a Haiti in which, the
right to success is guaranteed to all who invest
themselves for the future of the country, and do the hard
work it takes."
"In this New Haiti, every citizen will be entitled to put their
children in the schools of their choice. Adult individuals
will be able to enroll in schools, at the university, or in
trade schools to learn subject matters at any time in their life regardless of their age or career tract."
"My presidency of this New Haiti will be an example of a responsible republic, while maintaining sovereignty of the
state of Haiti. For instance, it will be possible to disagree with your peers and neighbors, while maintaining respect for
"In this New Haiti, those who have power in the public sector, whether in designing public policies, government
administration, business, justice system, or law and order, will be expected to exercise power accountably. This policy
will ensure that Haitian people gain confidence in the professional, governmental, administrative, and business elites."
"In this New Haiti, work, industry, efforts, and merit will pay off. Social mobility will be a legitimate and achievable
goal, and creating new businesses with micro-credits will be possible, encouraged, and valued."
"With respect for each other, better work ethic, security, and improved sanitation, inevitably will come the building of
infrastructures. I will continue to improve on the building of roads, canalization, pipelines for water – fuel and
electricity, and other infrastructures started by my predecessors. We shall not destroy them as we were accustomed
in the past. With such establishment, my government will bring new jobs, attract tourism, and the repatriation of our
brothers from the diaspora. New jobs, along with agricultural development will strengthen our economy, and those
who work will always be rewarded better than those who don't."
"In the New Haiti I am pledging, I will expect, value and encourage the respect for others, for the environment, and for
our society because I consider those as basic tenets for the common good. This New Haiti will then bring all Haitians
together regardless of their social class and cast."
Replying to our question about his plan for healthcare for the people and for
the land, Dr. Dalmacy summed it up with three paragraphs:
"In this New Haiti, the sick will benefit from better treatment from a universal
health system, regardless of their social or financial status."
"This New Haiti will be a country where agricultural development and
reboisement of affected territories will be at the fore front so as to curtail the
ongoing erosion affecting the land, and avoid natural disasters."
"This New Haiti will also be a country of well being. We will encourage
consumption of national produces and access to sport. We will promote and
provide more dependable and comfortable means of mass transportation. This, in turn, will incur a reduction in
environmental pollution that is currently infesting our capital city. I plan to also put in place programs to make people's
everyday lives easier, especially for women."
Dr. Dalmacy strongly believes that Haiti cannot be revamped without Haitians loving and respecting each other and
"This New Haiti," he added, "will be a country reconciled with itself, and being Haitian will again mean 'loving Haiti.'
Loving and implementing Haiti's intrinsic and extrinsic values, as well as its universal culture."
"Living in this New Haiti will mean: respecting every Haitian, meaning their person, their properties, taking
responsibilities for the well being of Haiti and of all its citizens. It will mean that everyone accept and respect each
other's identity, individuality and properties."
"Once implemented, Haiti and Haitians will bring fortune unto themselves," he said. "This will remediate the economy
of our country."
In conceiving this New Haiti, Dr. Dalmacy called it the Haiti of the future. But, he modified his statement, "In fact, this
is a Haiti that has always existed, the Haiti that gave me a free university education and made me who I am today."
Dr. Dalmacy believes he can take Haiti to the next level. He ended his remarks late in the evening by saying:
"I know that recreating Haiti may not be easy, but I also know that if we all work together, anything is possible:
TOGETHER WE CAN, and WE WILL."
Dr. Kesler Dalmacy is a candidate in the presidential election that will be held in Haiti on October 25, 2015. He is
campaigning in his mobile clinic, and is meeting the voters by touring cities and villages throughout Haiti, all the
while, with a smile, dispensing free care, learning of the voters' needs, and preaching love, peace, and harmony
among the people of Haiti.
If elected president, Dr. Dalmacy will be the second physician-president of Haiti, a country devastated by poverty and
natural disasters. According to the slogan that is being radio-diffused throughout the country during the campaign
season, "Haiti is sick, it needs a physician." This week, Dr. Dalmacy's candidacy has been favorably supported by
Haiti Observateur, the oldest and largest Haitian-American Newspaper in circulation to date.
