Thank you for your Feb. 8 article on the installation of President Rene Garcia Preval in Haiti. I was working with the OAS as an election monitor during the recent elections that brought Preval to power. Although voter turnout was no higher in these past elections than voter turnout in other democratic countries, Haiti is on the road to selecting its own leaders and securing a future based on self-determination.

Long lines formed at the polls as women voted during the morning, men in the afternoon. Final results are expected today in the election, which opens the way for a new generation of leadership. Neither President Joaquin Balaguer, who has governed the country for 22 of the past 30 years, nor his lifelong rival, 86-year-old Juan Bosch, is on the ballot.

U.S. moves to prop up Haiti's fragile democracy may actually undermine President Rene Garcia Preval and international efforts to help this impoverished nation, diplomats here warn. The arrival earlier this month of 40 heavily armed U.S. diplomatic security agents to protect Preval was the latest incident in what some allies view as a series of shortsighted measures to ensure that Haiti will not become an embarrassment in the six weeks before the U.S. presidential election.

President Clinton took office four years ago portraying himself as a different kind of Democrat, one who would transcend what he called "the brain-dead politics of both parties." It was his conceit that, unbeholden to the failed orthodoxies of his own party or of the Republicans, he would create a new center in American political life to address the anxieties of the beleaguered middle class and bridge the cultural chasm between government and the populace.
