Jobs top priority for Haitian citizens

By Vania Andre

Jobs are a top priority for Haitian citizens, according to poll results released last month. The nationwide poll was conducted by OCAPH, a Haitian-based civil organization, to bring to light the issues candidates in the upcoming election should be paying attention to.

“By a sizeable majority, jobs came in as the top priority,” OCAPH said in a statement.

“For the first time in our nation’s history, citizens have been empowered to voice their concerns using their cellphone,” said Guerda Previlon, OCAPH Deputy Director. “The poll is the first step in a series of citizen actions OCAPH will be taking in the coming months. We are determined to create a national debate platform based on issues that truly matter to our people.”
