Michel Martelly agreed to sacrifice Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe
President Michel Michel Martelly has agreed with all the recommendations made by the Commission, including the resignation of his Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe
President Martelly has followed the recommendations of a special commission, and asked Prime Minister Lamothe for his resignation. With Lamothe's resignation, Martelly hopes to end a protracted political fight thwarting elections.
Everyone is confused about when a new Prime Minister can be installed, but it needs to happen before January 12th, or else Martelly rules by decree.
The opposition is worried Martelly will operate a dictatorship, so he can control presidential elections in 2015.« Previous · Next »
