U.N. Special Envoy on Haiti says Joseph to remain prime minister for now

(Reuters) – The U.N. Special Envoy for Haiti on Thursday said Prime Minister Claude Joseph would remain the leader of the Caribbean nation until an election is held as she urged all parties to set aside their differences following the assassination of President Jovenel Moise.

“Stakeholders need to set aside their differences and to chart a common way forward and overcome this difficult moment in a peaceful manner,” said Helen La Lime, the U.N. Special Envoy for Haiti, adding that Joseph told her the elections were on track to be held later this year.
