Haiti former Prime Minister Alexis, now a presidential candidate, eluded an assassination attempt on his life

DARTMOUTH, MA, Oct. 26 - Jacques Edouard Alexis, a Haitian presidential candidate who Haitian citizens continue to chastise for not even attempting to improve their quality of lives when he was twice a Haiti's retrograde dictator Rene Preval prime minister was nearly assassinated late yesterday while campaigning in Haiti's western city of Gonaives' dirt-poor neighborhood of Raboteau after men and women - nearly all armed with guns, machetes, batons, and sticks - violently attacked the presidential contender, supporters, and a large number of campaign workers who accompanied him.

Mr. Alexis was not injured, but at least one of his bodyguards' life was terminated after angry citizens pumped fatal shots into his body.

The latest unfortunate event came just a few days after malcontent Haiti natives residing in Montreal attempted to physically attack the former premier during a campaign visit there, but fortunately were prevented from doing so by a large contingent of riot police officers.
