FRANCE WELCOMES THE APPOINTMENT OF LAURENT LAMOTHE
(Haiti Libre) -
France welcomes the appointment of a Prime Minister in Haiti, Mr. Laurent Lamothe, who obtained a clear support in both houses of parliament.
"After the vote of budget, this appointment is another signal of national unity which is encouraging.
The formation of a government, enjoying the support of parliamentarians, must enable the authorities to act with determination to improve the fate of the population, coordinate and implement major projects of reconstruction, and implement effective governance for the whole country.
All actors of the Haitian political life must continue their efforts of dialogue and consensus building in the national interest.
France, with its European and international partners, will continue to assist Haiti and to work for the country's development. We want in particular help to consolidate the rule of law and build strong institutions at the service of Haitians."
