“I don’t sense there is a prime minister in the country,” Jean Monard Metellus told listeners before directing his comments to Paul, a friend and former radio host and playwright known by the nickname K-Plim (KP). “I don’t think your dream is to die with a line on your [résumé] that simply said ‘Prime Minister.’”
Paul, a veteran politician and democracy combatant, is at the height of power as Haiti’s latest — and President Michel Martelly’s third — head of government.
But the de-facto way in which he got there — he was tapped by Martelly in December and parliament dissolved last month before giving its constitutionally required blessing — has both friends and foe wondering: How long will he last? Is he capable of rising to his biggest political challenge yet — steering Haiti to credible long overdue elections? via | The Miami Herald
