Haitian government approves Cabinet selection

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-10-15

Haiti's Chamber of Deputies approved a 17-member Cabinet and the Prime Minister Garry Conille's legislative program in a vote on Saturday morning. Conille (pictured), a former Bill Clinton adviser, was appointed to his post last week.

AP - Haiti is finally operating under a fully staffed government almost a year after national elections were held.

The Chamber of Deputies approved a 17-member Cabinet and the policy agenda of Prime Minister Garry Conille on Saturday morning.

There were 81 favorable votes and seven abstentions in a hearing that lasted 14 hours.

The vote comes five months after musician Michel Martelly was sworn in as president and a week after Conille was approved as prime minister.

The delay in establishing a formal government has slowed reconstruction following last year's devastating earthquake.
