Haiti Parliament Fire Prime Minister Jean Henry Céant
Prime Minister Henry Ceant has been thrown out of office on Monday by a no-confidence vote prompted by government dysfunction and inability to quash inflation, blackouts and frequent opposition protests.
The Chamber of Deputies voted 93-6, with three abstaining to replace Ceant as soon as President Jovenel Moise and the heads of parliament's two houses agree on a replacement.
Until then, Prime Minister Ceant and his Cabinet will remain in place with limited powers, raising the prospect of even rockier government performance.
Jovenel Moise and Jean Henry Céan have had frequent disagreements that have hampered Ceant's ability to carry out his constitutional duty to run the state.
