Haiti Legislative Palace still in ruins years after Earthquake

Here is a picture of the Legislative Palace in Haiti that was destroyed during the 2010 earthquake still in ruins years after Earthquake.

Exactly four years after the earthquake rocked Haiti and left its legislative palace in ruins, the buildings' reconstruction had yet to get underway. At the time of that anniversary, January 12, 2014, the then Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, said the government would accelerate its plan to rebuild the structure. But the public believed this to be a pipe dream, as the construction failed to happen. A total of 42 public buildings were completely destroyed by the earthquake. Even with the vast aid giving by international entities, the number is perhaps too much for complete recovery so soon for the struggling country.
