The power struggle in Haiti appears to have been settled: Interim Governor Claude Joseph resigned and the torch passed

The decision was made this weekend, not by Haiti, but by an international community that has so far been reluctant to recognize a new leader.

This weekend, a “core group” of ambassadors from the United Nations and the Organization of American States, as well as from the United States, the European Union, Brazil and Canada, expressed their support for Prime Minister-designate Ariel Henry. He must now lead a transitional government and organize new elections for a president and parliament. Constitutionally, Henry could not be a candidate himself.

In an exclusive interview with Washington Post Prime Minister Claude Joseph has now announced that he is handing over power “for the good of the nation”. However, there is a problem: just because he is no longer the transitional leader, he can become a constitutional candidate for president if elections are held.

Last weekend, Martin Moyes, the president’s wife who was seriously injured in the attack, returned to Haiti after receiving treatment in the United States. Claude Joseph welcomed her, but she did not openly interfere in the debate over power. (Read more below the picture).
