Haiti still to reach consensus on a new government

Michel Martelly

The United Nations is encouraging all political actors in Haiti to reach a consensus on a new government.

Haiti has been without a government for almost three months, the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti says.

The reason behind it is the ongoing struggle between President Michel Martelly and Parliament over the confirmation of a new prime minister.

The UN mission in the country, MINUSTAH, says all political players in the country must work in the best interests of the nation.

The country is still struggling to recover from the devastating 2010 earthquake that killed more than 200,000 people and displaced 2.3 million others.

Meanwhile, Haiti is also bracing itself for what is likely to be the first of several storms of this year's hurricane season.
