Hours after being appointed as Haiti’s new prime minister on Wednesday, Claude Joseph said the solution to Haiti’s ongoing violence is the upcoming elections.
“Delivering free, fair and transparent elections is the top priority for this administration and the only way to create long-term peace and prosperity for all Haitians,” Joseph posted on his Twitter account.
Joseph is also the foreign minister. He replaces Joseph Jouthe, who resigned earlier Wednesday. Joseph is the sixth prime minister under President Jovenel Moïse.
