Haiti takes more steps to end political standoff | The Miami Herald


President Michel Martelly has not yet announced who he will nominate to replace Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to run the government of the troubled country, and a presidential spokesman, Lucien Juras, declined in a news conference Monday to name the candidates.Juras did say, however, that Martelly was addressing the recommendations of an independent commission created by the president to end the impasse over delayed legislative elections.The recommendations he was carrying out included seeking the resignation of the nine members of the country’s electoral council and the release of prisoners who government opponents have said were improperly jailed for political reasons, an allegation the president denies. via | The Miami Herald
