No... Laurent Lamothe is not yet the Prime Minister of Haiti... He must still win the approval of the Chamber of Deputies.

How long will that take?

Lamothe's appointment and the formation of a new government could still take months, Agence France Presse says, as Martelly does not have a majority in parliament.

Months???

Hmmm... Wow...

Thank you Jean Pierre for your reply,

I hope it will make sence for everyone about what I am saying.

I know all the diasporas everywhere in the world would like to see a beautiful Haiti to live in and out of Haiti; I leave in Ottawa-Canada for 16 years; Now I am in Toronto-Canada about 7 years.

I still have problem with that, why the senates take so long to approuve Laurent Lamothe to be Prime Minister?

what is the Senate plan for Haiti?

In Canada some companies ask the employees just a record criminal check from the government of Canada, if this person have record criminal the company will decide if they will hire this applicant or not; I am a truck trailer driver, if I had record criminal, I would be able to drive only my own truck otherwise no company will hire me. I unnderstand that Haiti is not develop like the six powers in the world, but forget about the year of 1957-1986, if the senates, deputy and the other members of the parliament really knew the good or bad people to choose or not like that, why Haiti was devasted before the earthquake 2010 like that?
