Port-au-Prince: Haiti’s transitional council has named ex-Sports Minister Fritz Belizaire as the country’s new prime minister, local media reported Tuesday.

Belizaire replaces Michel Patrick Boisvert, who temporarily held the premiership from April 25, when the transitional council was installed and the resignation of Ariel Henry was announced.

The members of the council reached a majority agreement Tuesday on the appointments without requiring an election process in a bid to quickly restore constitutional order in the Caribbean country roiled by gang violence, and political and social upheaval, local media reported.

The nine-member council, including two observers, is tasked with leading the country towards new elections in 2026.
