A nine member council in charge of overseeing Haiti political transition and which also holds
some presidential powers, lead by council president Edgard Leblanc has named Garry Conille as
an interim prime minister on Tuesday evening after consensus hearing of all the candidates.

Conille has briefly served Haiti as a prime minister in a period of 7 months from 2011 to 2012
and later resigned due lack of support from the cabinets. He was then appointed by the UN as the
regional director at the children’s agency (UNICEF) in 2023.

As Haiti is working to restore its stability and take back control from the violent gang, Conille
appointment is considered a main gate way obtain international support as they prepare for an
expected back up from the UN security mission led by Kenya.

Since the assassination of president Jovenel Moise in July 2021, Haiti has not engaged in an
official national election. After the unelected official, Henry, who was chosen days before the
assassination, assumed the presidential seat but failed to call a vote for Moise replacement, this
only increased tension in the country.

Haiti gang sought to fill the power vacuum, since February 29, the gang had taken over the
capital Port-au-Prince capturing airports, police stations, government ministries, prisons and
other government facilities creating more insecurity.

The number of displaced Haitian citizens majorly in Port-au-Prince has been estimated to 360,000 by the UN, 1500 people have been killed since the first three months of 2024.

Conille will lead the nation until the holding of general election which is to be held before February, 7th 2026, according to the Haitian constitution.
