Haiti’s probable new president

14 Dec

FOLLOWING the example of the United States, Haiti has elected as its new president a businessman with no experience in government. Jovenel Moïse, the smooth-domed nominee of the Haitian Shaved-Head Party (this is where the parallel with the American election breaks down), won outright in the first round of voting, held on November 20th. His plans for governing his impoverished country are fuzzy. If Mr Moïse simply brings political stability, many Haitians will be grateful.
