Haiti‘s acting prime minister Claude Joseph agrees to step down and hand over
power to his rival, Ariel Henry, according to a top government official.
The deal brings to a close day of negotiations between the two men over who would
lead the Caribbean nation. Joseph has led the country since the shocking
assassination of President Jovenel Moise on July 7, emphasizing a need for stability in
the Caribbean nation. Henry, who had been nominated to the premiership days
before Moise’s death but never took office, disputed Joseph’s claim.
