Haiti – FLASH : President Moïse renews the mandate of the Prime Minister for 30 days
Friday, May 14 in the official journal Le Moniteur Spécial #26, President Moïse published an Order appointing the citizen Claude Joseph, Prime Minister a.i., for a period of thirty (30) days.
“he mandate of PM a.i Claude Joseph is coming to an end today [Friday]. I am renewing him for the same duration. The time has come to find a favorable outcome to this crisis which has lasted for 35 years. Together, we can do it,” wrote President Jovenel Moïse on Friday evening on his Twitter account.
Recall that according to Frantz Exantus, the Secretary of State for Communication had declared earlier this week that five personalities were currently assessed to assume the post of Prime Minister https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33701-haiti-politic-5-candidates-in-evaluation-for-the-post-of-prime-minister.html “If all goes well, we should soon have a new Prime Minister”.
But apart from this choice, the cause of this extension beyond the 30 days granted by the Constitution is the impossibility to find so far a political agreement to form a Government of national unity. However, President Moïse remains confident to reach an agreement next week to form a new government.
