Haiti leader, ruling without parliament, gets new Cabinet – Yahoo News

The 20 ministers and more than a dozen secretaries of state were named roughly a week after parliament dissolved amid a bitter stalemate between Martelly and a group of opposition lawmakers. They were installed Monday in a ceremony at the site of the former national palace, which toppled in the cataclysmic 2010 earthquake that destroyed much of Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas.

Martelly kept half of his former Cabinet ministers in their posts in what he touted as a “consensus government” reached after negotiations with a number of Haiti’s opposition parties. Changes were made in several key ministries, including justice and planning. via – Yahoo News
