President Jovenel Moise on Monday named Fritz-William Michel prime minister, following the resignation of his predecessor who failed to win parliamentary approval for his government.
Formerly an executive in the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Michel is Moise's fourth head of government in his two-and-a-half years in office.
The president made the announcement in a Monday night Twitter post, but must formalize it with an official decree.
Michel's appointment came after consultations between Moise and the leaders of the two chambers of parliament, signaling a resumption of dialogue between the three political heavyweights after months of turmoil.
Fritz-William Michel faces the tough task of restoring public confidence in Haiti's leadership.
