Haitian Prime Minister Resigns


Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, has resigned from office after being appointed by former president Rene Preval 18 months ago. “I feel it was normal that I gave to President Preval my resignation because he appointed me and so the new president Martelly can discuss with the new parliament a new profile,” he said. Bellerive hand-delivered a letter announcing his decision to Daniel Supplice, the head of Martelly’s transition team. [Jamaica Observer]
