Haitian President Jovenel Moise, has picked Jack Guy Lafontant, a medical Dr to be Haiti's Prime minister. The President made the announcement late Wednesday via twitter, some two weeks following his official swearing in ceremony.
The choice of Jack Guy Lafontant comes as a huge surprise to many since he has no prior government or political experience. Until his nomination by Moise he was best known for being the president of the Rotary Club in the suburbs in Petion Ville. Moise, a businessman in the banana sector, had not held any political office until his investiture on February 7 either.
Lafontant's nomination must be confirm by parliament, but the President, who had numerous meetings with lawmakers before making his choice public, is confident that he has enough support in the legislative branch.
