On his Twitter account, the Cuban head of Government wished Henry success in his current duties and reaffirmed Cuba’s commitment to ‘the brother Haitian people.’

On Monday, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse appointed Ariel Henry prime minister, so he become the sixth person to hold that post since March 2017.

Graduated in neurosurgery in France, Henry was the minister of the Interior and the minister of Labor and Social Affairs during the Michel Martelly administration (2011-2016).

Since 2020 he has been part of the multisectoral commission that manages the Covid-19 pandemic.

The doctor replaced Claude Joseph, who is also the Foreign Minister. Joseph assumed the post after the resignation in mid-April of Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe.

Since he took office in February 2017, Moïse has appointed seven prime ministers: Jack Guy Lafontant, Jean Henry Ceant, Jean Michel Lapin, Fritz William Michel (who never took office), Joseph Jouthe, Claude Joseph and now Ariel Henry.
