Haitians sceptical about elections

A Haitian mother struggling to provide for her family tells Al Jazeera she is not hopeful about the vote.

    As candidates in Haiti try to whip up support ahead of the poll, many Haitians say they're sceptical about whether a new president will make any difference in their daily lives.

    More than one million people are still homeless following January's earthquake, and criticism over the slow pace of reconstruction is growing.

    Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman revisited one displaced family to see how they're coping 10 months on.

    Rosalind Edmond, a mother of four living in a makeshift camp, says she fears that she and her compatriots will be forgotten after the election - by the Haitian government and international donors alike.
