Is Haiti fit to vote? (second part)

Cities in ruins and a raging cholera epidemic. Some might say Haiti is not in the best position to hold an election. Still, this weekend the country's traumatised population goes to the polls to choose a new president. Is democracy important to Haitians at this time of unprecedented crisis? Or is it enough of a challenge just surviving day to day? Before we kick off tonight’s debate, let’s remind ourselves of the daily struggle for survival in Haiti.

GUESTS:

Patrick COULOMBEL, President, Emergency Architects

Adrien TOMARCHIO, Communication & Development Manager, Agence d'Aide à la Coopération Technique Et au Développement (ACTED)

Thomas GONNET, Head of Operations, Action Contre la Faim (Action Against Hunger France)

By phone from Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Maeva BAMBUCK, France 24 correspondent
