In Haiti, Aristide tells thousands to vote for candidate

Posted:

Twice-ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide has told thousands of supporters who flocked to his home to vote for the presidential candidate of the party he founded years ago.


   The crowd of Fanmi Lavalas party backers chanted and waved photos of Aristide as they arrived outside his home Wednesday afternoon in a Port-au-Prince suburb following a campaign rally for the faction's presidential candidate.


   In early evening, Aristide appeared outside his gate to address the crowd. He called on supporters to "stick together" to ensure that Narcisse wins this year's presidential election. The first round is Oct. 25.


   Narcusse stood next to Aristide on the back of a pickup truck as the ex-president spoke to the crowd outside the property where he has lived quietly since returning to Haiti in 2011.
