US, CARICOM welcome Haiti’s Interim Prime Minister

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts -- HAITI’S Transitional Presidential Council has announced Garry Conille as the new interim Prime Minister of the economically challenged Caribbean territory, garnering support from both the United States and CARICOM.


    Following the announcement, the United States congratulated the Haitian Transitional Presidential Council on its nomination of Conille, urging both the council and the incoming Prime Minister to "work collaboratively and to engage all stakeholders in support of the Haitian people, who continue to suffer the brutality of horrific gang violence."


    In a media statement, the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) welcomed the news, stating, “The unanimous election of Dr. Garry Conille by the Transitional Presidential Council (TPC), following a selection process with nominations from several stakeholder sectors, is another important step forward on the path to free and fair elections and the return to constitutional order in Haiti.”


    Acknowledging the numerous challenges ahead, CARICOM expressed its support for the Prime Minister-designate and reiterated its “commitment of support to the Transitional Presidential Council and to the people of Haiti.”


    “CARICOM commends the Transitional Presidential Council for putting the interests of the country and the people of Haiti above all else. This will remain a paramount objective as the TPC, working with Transitional Prime Minister Conille, continues to move forward in restoring security and in establishing the critical, broadly representative institutions necessary for the delivery of public services, the provision of humanitarian relief, facilitating socio-economic improvement, and the holding of free and fair elections in a timely manner,” the CARICOM statement read.


    Meanwhile, the United States encouraged the interim Prime Minister and the Transitional Presidential Council to "act swiftly to nominate a credible, accountable, and inclusive government and Provisional Electoral Council to enable free and fair elections, and the provision of security and basic services for all Haitians."


    The interim Prime Minister and the transitional council now have the mandate to lead the country to general elections and ensure a swift transition out of the challenges it currently faces.
