Haiti PM resigns amid violence, political strife

Haitian Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe has resigned as the country faces a spike in killings and kidnappings and prepares for an upcoming constitutional referendum and general election later this year. He has served as the Prime Minister since March 2020. He did not give an explanation for his resignation yesterday.

Jouthe previously had tried to submit his resignation, but President Jovenel Moïse at the time had rejected it. This time, Moïse accepted it and nominated Claude Joseph as Haiti’s new Prime Minister.

The President tweeted that Jouthe’s resignation will make it possible to address the glaring problem of insecurity and continue discussions with the aim of reaching the consensus necessary for the political and institutional stability of the country. Haiti has seen eight Prime Ministers since 2015.
