Haiti leader installs new PM, pledges consensus government – Yahoo News

Evans Paul Haiti President to form new government after angry protests Part-WAS-Was8895271-1-1-0Haiti’s President Michel Martelly on Friday swore in Evans Paul as the nation’s new prime minister, and pledged to form a consensus government within 48 hours to solve a worsening political crisis.

Paul, a political opponent who was chosen after last month’s resignation of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, took office during a ceremony at government headquarters attended by diplomats and political figures.

But he lacks the constitutional approval of parliament, whose term ended January 12 without any date being set for new elections. via – Yahoo News
