Michel Martelly announces new government cabinet
Martelly Reneges on Promise to Form Consensus Government
President Martelly has not honored his word to form a consensus government. His new cabinet contains several ministers, who worked under ex-Prime Minister Lamothe. Ex-senate president, Desras, says, ". . . only one opposition member made the cabinet list . . ."
Martelly's opposition also criticizes his choice of planning minister, Yves Joseph, an intimate of former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier.
Holding state and local elections is critical, but Martelly needs to seat an Electoral Council first.
