Cabinet named but not yet installed
President Jovenel Moïse has now appointed his prime minister, Jean Guy Lafontant, and a Cabinet composed of 18 ministers including 5 women.
The prime minister has announced a government programme (in French) which can be found here.
All that is now needed is for a confirmation hearing by the Senate to allow the government to get on with its work of rebuilding the country. Unfortunately a chunk of the Senate aren’t prepared to play ball and so the formation of a new government is currently in limbo.
