Haiti still does not have a government
Sept. 14, marks four months in office for Haitian President Michel Martelly (pictured). It is now more than 120 days since he was elected, and yet he still has not been able to form a government.
Parliament has rejected his first two nominees for Prime Minister, one in June and one last month, and it’s not certain his third nominee, Garry Conille, will be approved. Haiti observers fear that this, in addition to all the adminstrative problems facing Mr. Martelly, will threaten to stall the already sluggish reconstruction of the western hemisphere’s poorest nation.
