Haiti: Establishment of transitional council to select new leaders welcomed

The spokesperson for the UN’s top official issued a statement on his behalf on Saturday, welcoming the official order issued on April 12, under which this council was formed.

This transitional council will select the new Prime Minister and Cabinet in Haiti.

In his statement, Secretary-General Guterres urged all stakeholders to continue the progress made under the transitional governance arrangement.

This includes the timely appointment of an interim Prime Minister and Government, and the nomination of members of the Interim Electoral Council.

The UN chief noted the mandate of the Transitional Council to work together with the international community to expedite the deployment of the Multinational Security Support Force.

The Security Council approved the mission last year with the aim of improving security in Haiti, which is struggling from violence by criminal groups.

He reiterated his appeal to all member countries to contribute to this multinational mission.

Amid the political vacuum in Haiti, powerful armed groups have launched coordinated attacks since February aimed at tightening their grip.

These include police stations, prisons, airports, ports, and deteriorating law and order situation that forced Prime Minister Ariel Henry to resign in March 2024.

Criminal gangs still hold sway in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, and its surrounding areas. Amid insecurity and instability, UN humanitarian workers in Haiti continue to deliver emergency aid to those in need.

recently, World Food Programme ,WFP) distributed 19,000 meals to displaced civilians in Port-au-Prince and provided food to 200,000 children in schools in other provinces.
