Prime Minister Ariel Henry Resigns Over Violence.

Prime Minister Ariel Henry Resigns Over Violence.

Haiti's Prime Minister Ariel Henry has agreed to resign following weeks of mounting pressure and increasing violence in the impoverished country.


This is coming after regional leaders met in Jamaica to discuss a political transition in Haiti, and Henry is currently stranded in Puerto Rico after being prevented by armed gangs from returning home.


Henry, who had led the country supposedly on an interim basis since July 2021 following former President JovenelMoïse's assassination, had repeatedly postponed elections, saying security must be restored first, while, many Haitians had questioned him governing the country for this long without an elected president.


Heavily armed gangs have tightened their grip on the streets of the capital Port-au-Prince, and attacked the main prison to help thousands of inmates escape, while, also demanding the resignation of the unelected prime minister.
