With no president in sight, Haiti gets transitional government

Former haitian soldiers patrol streets in Port-au-Prince on February 5th, 2016 during a protest against President Michel Martelly and for a transitional government to avoid a power vacuum upon his exitPort-au-Prince (AFP) – Haitian politicians inked a last-minute agreement to install a transitional government Saturday, just hours before President Michel Martelly was scheduled to step down with no replacement in line. The agreement, signed by the presidents of both chambers of the National Assembly, keeps the country from plunging into an immediate power vacuum on Martelly’s exit, after an election to choose his replacement was postponed over fears of violence. In light of the annulled vote, which would have occurred on January 24 and given the country time to put a new leader in power, Parliament will elect an interim president, with a term of up to 120 days, the four-page agreement said.
