Lapin confirmed as Haiti's new prime minister

Haiti's President Jovenel Moise today confirmed Jean-Michel Lapin in his post as the country's new prime minister, just weeks after the Chamber of Deputies censured his predecessor's six-month-old government.


The new administration that Lapin — currently the acting prime minister — must assemble with Moise will face pressing problems such as the high cost of living and the insecurity that plagues the capital.


Haiti is still recovering from widespread riots in February, when thousands of people took to the streets across the country — one of the world's poorest — to demand better living conditions and the departure of the head of state.


For about 11 days, all activities ground to a halt in Port-au-Prince and across most of the Caribbean country's cities.


Lapin, the former culture and communications minister, was named acting prime minister on March 21, three days after the Chamber of Deputies voted to censure the government of former prime minister Jean-Henry Ceant.
