Senate Confirms 14 Ambassador Nominees, including new U.S. Ambassador to Haiti, Mr. Peter F. Mulrean

ambassador peter f mulrean 2 salutes the confirmation of nominee Peter F. Mulrean as new U.S. Ambassador to Haiti.  We believe that Ambassador Mulrean may have a tough job awaiting him, as Haiti is likely to enter into a new era of political instability and violence if President Martelly carries it out the elections that the he wants to hold for seats in Haiti’a legislative bodies, on Sunday, August 9, 2015, in which only candidates sponsored by Mr. Martelly are allowed to campaign.  Throughout Haiti, several competing candidates have been shot dead or have been seriously wounded  by gunfire, and most opposition candidates are believed to be in hiding.  It is noteworthy to mention that Mr. Martelly has spread his handpicked candidates in over 30 political parties.  Moreover, for the past few weeks leading to elections day next Sunday, it’s been difficult for citizens to get a good night’s sleep, as gunfire from automatic and other heavy weapons have created a war-like atmosphere that makes people fear for their lives.  We are pleased to congratulate Ambassador Mulrean for his confirmation and wish him well on a mission to which he brings a very impressive resume, and a great reputation as a fine diplomat and a problem solver, with great expertise on issues pertaining to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.  Welcome to Haiti, Ambassador Mulrean.
