Haiti’s transitional council names new prime minister in hopes of quelling violence

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Haiti’s newly installed transitional council elected former sports minister on Tuesday Fritz Belizaire as the country’s prime minister, as he advances his monumental task of trying to establish a new stable government in the midst of suffocating violence.

Belizaire replaces Michel Patrick Boisvert, former Minister of Economy and Finance and current interim Prime Minister. Belizaire is little known, and some members of the Council did not even know about it.

The nine-member transitional council, seven of whom have voting rights, is tasked with electing a new prime minister and cabinet in a bid to help quell gang violence choking the capital of Port-au-Prince and beyond.

More than 90,000 people have fled Port-au-Prince within a month and, in total, more than 360,000 people have been left homeless in recent years as groups of gunmen have devastated communities in rival territories.
