Haiti’s new Prime Minister takes office
Haiti’s new Prime Minister Jean-Henry Céant has been sworn into Office.
President Jovenel Moise on Tuesday led the official swearing-in ceremony at the National Palace in Port au Prince.
The Ceremony followed the President’s announcement on Sunday that he had selected Céant after consultations with the two branches of Parliament. The announcement came three weeks after former Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant resigned amid violent and deadly protests sparked by a proposal to significantly increase fuel prices.
Prime Minister Céant has had a long involvement in Haitian politics and was a presidential candidate in 2016.
