Ariel Henry appointed Haiti's new prime minister

Haiti's President Jovenel Moïse has named his seventh prime minister since coming to office in 2017.
 
Ariel Henry replaces Claude Joseph, who was appointed in April this year, two months after Mr. Moïse began ruling by executive order after the terms of most members of Parliament expired.
 
Mr. Moïse had unsuccessfully spent a year trying to get two different prime ministers through Parliament after the Lower Chamber of Deputies fired Prime Minister Jean-Henry Céant on March 18 last year.
 
Haiti is facing a constitutional crisis with many Haitians saying they no longer recognise Mr. Moïse because they believe his term expired on February 7 under the current constitution.
