Haiti opposition cautiously welcomes PM's resignation

Protesters calling for the resignation of President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe block a street with burning tires and barricades in the center of Port-au-Prince, on December 13, 2014Port-au-Prince (AFP) – Haiti’s emboldened opposition welcomed the resignation Sunday of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, who faced repeated calls to go over the failure to hold legislative elections in the past three years. The increasingly unpopular Lamothe’s resignation had been widely expected after President Michel Martelly said Friday that his cabinet chief was ready to leave “to help find a solution” to the Caribbean country’s dragging political impasse. His critics have warned he could send back Haiti to dictatorial rule and also are demanding that he resign. A commission set up by the president has recommended forming a consensus government including opposition members, disbanding Haiti’s electoral council and freeing political prisoners.
