ALN President, Dr Mamadou Lamine Bâ, was recently invited by the National Democratic Institute to participate in a programme aimed at developing the ideological background of eight political parties in Port-au-Prince, Haïti.
Dr Lamine Bâ delivered a speech focusing on the core principles of liberalism, denouncing the negative perspectives of the ideology: “Liberalism is freedom with responsibility; liberalism is humanism. Liberalism is not responsible for the financial crisis. Since its foundation, liberalism as an ideology is against colonization, slavery and selfishnesses. Liberals encourage private initiative and individual freedoms. Interventionism, in the event of need, is not antiliberal’.
Dr Lamine Bâ also met with leaders of different political parties, with the former Prime Ministers Yvon Neptune and Jacques Edouard Alexis, and participated in a face-to-face TV debate with Antonio Gambini, a representative of Socialist International.
