Haiti leader installs new prime minister – Sky News

Haiti’s President Michel Martelly has sworn in the country’s new prime minister, Evans Paul, a political opponent who was chosen after last month’s resignation of Laurent Lamothe.

Paul took office during a ceremony on Friday at government headquarters attended by diplomats and political figures.

However, he still does not have the constitutional approval of parliament, whose term ended January 12 without any date being set for new elections.

Protesters, who again took to the streets on Friday, accuse Martelly of tacitly allowing the parliament to expire in order to rule by decree like the country’s former dictators. via Sky News.
