Jacques S. Thimoleon, M. Simon D. Desras, Michel Martelly forming new government
There is life after Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. The executive and the legislative power understand that clearly. This is a meeting between Deputy Jacques S. Thimoléon, M. Simon D. Desras and President Michel Martelly consulting to form a new government.
Consultative Commission Urges Opposition to Declare a Truce
President Martelly has abided by a special commission's recommendation that Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe be asked to resign. Lamothe offered his resignation Sunday December 14th.
Demonstrators have demanded the Martelly-Lamothe government be ended when the holding of general elections in October did not occur.
The commission is asking the opposition to declare a truce so both sides can agree to hold elections before Parliament closes down and Martelly rules by presidential decree.
