I am a physician, but I am not running for president to put a band-aid on our problems; I am running to solve them.
(PRWEB) November 16, 2016
Anoki Communications announces that Dr. Kesler Dalmacy, a Physician and Surgeon who has practiced medicine for decades in the State of New York, will re-enter the race for president of Haiti during the election of November 20, 2016.
According to Lelio Francillon, a former classmate of the candidate, "Dr. Dalmacy re-entered the presidential race to implement new policies to reconstruct Haiti. – Policies to make Haiti safer, to build Haiti’s infrastructures, to reduce the literacy gap among the citizens, policies to create jobs, improve health care, public health, and rebuild Haiti’s economy."
In a Telephone interview conducted recently at his Kenscoff residence in Haiti, Dr. Dalmacy reflected on the on-going crisis of insecurity, insalubrities on the streets of the capital city, declining economy, lack of health care access and the anemic rate of job creation that have plagued the nation since its independence from France in 1804.
When asked if he had any words of wisdom for the Haitian people before the election, this is what Dr. Dalmacy had to say:
"People of Haiti, as we all know, Haiti is at a stand-still. We are a nation at war with ourselves, with nature, and with our future in a very demanding world. We have an endemic faltering economy, and over 10 million citizens living in despair and in poverty. After more than two centuries, and an election that was rigged a year ago, we have another opportunity for a new beginning on November 20, 2016."
"Today, you can take the first step. After all the debates, and the rallies, and after all the controversies and events attributed to this campaign season are over, it comes down to this reality: Who is ready to be the president of Haiti, and who is ready to take the big challenges we now face?"
"The good news is: We can solve those challenges. We can change the era of uncertainties, of insecurities, of insalubrity, and of unemployment. We can offer universal schooling to our sons and daughters. We can make a new beginning for our economy; we can change the era of ineffective and corrupt government. We can make a new beginning for health care."
"I am a physician, but I am not running for president to put a band-aid on our problems; I am running to solve them, to change the outlook and future of every Haitian and of Haiti."
"You have welcomed me in your villages and in your homes, and I thank you. The stories you shared with me will always stay with me: Parents joggling jobs to pay their rent, to send their children to school and to stay alive. Haitians who depend on the Diaspora to survive and make ends meet, always worrying that your loved one in the Diaspora might withdraw their assistance some day."
"You, who can’t find a job to support your family; Women and Young girls raped or assaulted by individuals from their own close circle; Men and women across Haiti who have whispered or discussed their problems with me, i.e. bills they can’t pay, education they can’t afford, parents they can no longer afford to care for, intruders occupying their properties, insecurities they have no control on, I am there for you all."
"I know you have been waiting for a long time for a president who can hear you and see you, and I would like to be that president. So, I ask you to vote for me on Election Day. If you are in Haiti, get dress, go out and vote the # 71, which symbolizes a New Beginning for Haiti; if you are in Diaspora, call up a friend or family member and ask them to vote for me. Wherever you are, you can help change Haiti."
"If you secure that vote for me and stand with me on Election Day, I will stand up for you every day as your president. I will work myself out with all that I am, and all that I have, with a team of capable and like minded individuals to bring the Haiti we all so love and cherish the new beginning it needs."
"Thank you for your vote of confidence."
"Together we can, and we will.”
"May God bless you all, and may God bless Haiti."
The Haitian Presidential election of 2016 will be held in Haiti on 20 November 2016 for the first round. If elected, Dr. Dalmacy will be the second physician to preside over Haiti. The first physician president was Francois Duvalier, alias Papa Doc, who was elected to office in 1957.
