Haiti's new government to be led by Ariel Henry

A new government is to be formed in Haiti on Tuesday with Ariel Henry as Prime Minister. 
 
This follows news on Monday that Haiti's interim prime minister, Claude Joseph, who has been in charge of the country since the July 7 assassination of president Jovenel Moïse, will step down. 
 
Mr. Joseph will retain his original role as Haiti's foreign minister.
 
A source close to the prime minister's office said the new government will be tasked with organizing elections as soon as possible.
 
Elections Minister Mathias Pierre says negotiations about the composition of the rest of government are ongoing.
 
Mr. Moïse had tapped Ariel Henry to replace Mr. Joseph as prime minister just days before the Haitian president was shot dead in his home.
