aiti new Ministerial cabinet
Haitian President, Michel Martelly, continues to push forward with his plans for the country despite the rather underwhelming changes in the public's opinion about the current political climate. His newest step in his role as de facto leader is the appointment and swearing in of Haiti's new ministerial cabinet. Joining him for the ceremony was his chosen Prime Minister, former Port-au-Prince Mayor, Evans Paul who recently named forty-four ministers and state secretaries despite his still unratified state.
The swearing in of 12 secretaries of state and 20 ministers took place at the National Palace, and the President took the opportunity to thank the opposition for their show of "goodwill", saying there is now pluralism within the new government. On the opposition side of the spectrum, some opposition leaders still accuse Martelly of not delivering on the promised consensus government, and the protests still continue.
