As with everything else in Haiti that have kept the country from developing, political issues have also played its role in Haitian history. The political gap in Haiti have institutionalized the political party system. Haiti have never had a strong political system that had the country in its best interest. Instead throughout the history there have been political leaders whose interest seem to always be to gain power or to become president. Political culture also plays a role in Haiti's political movement. Political culture is important to understand in Haiti because it portrays each and every politician as rich people with no ties or responsibility to Haiti. Each of these politicians represent the Republic of Haiti. There are three active branches in Haiti like the U.S. There is the Executive, the legislative and the judicial branch. The Executive branch consist of the president of Haiti, the cabinet of ministers, the government offices and the diplomatic missions. The Legislative branch consist of the Chamber of deputies and the senate. The judicial branch includes the Supreme court and the high court justices. There are other independent institutions that play a role in elections. Some of these independent institutions are : The provisional electoral council, the Superior Court Auditors and administrative Disputes (SCAAD), the Conciliation Commission, the protection of citizens and finally, the University. The last category that have control over the election in Haiti are the civil society which includes the different political parties and the media.
