Haiti transition council taps former PM Conille to again lead country /world/americas/haiti-transition-council-taps-former-pm-again-lead-country-source-says-2024-05-28/

PORT-AU-PRINCE, May 28 (Reuters) - Haiti's transition council on Tuesday tapped former Prime Minister Garry Conille, who briefly led the country over a decade ago, to return to the role as the Caribbean nation works to restore stability and take back control from violent gangs.

The transition council voted 6-1 to install Conille as interim prime minister, a member told Reuters.

Conille's extensive resume in development, working largely with the United Nations, is considered key to shoring up international support as Haiti prepares to launch a U.N.-backed security mission led by Kenya, though its deployment has faced hurdles.
