Woman in power...Michele Pierre-Louis
Haitian President Rene Preval has designated Michele Pierre-Louis as his new prime minister, parliament leader Kely Bastien said, after the body turned down two other candidates in the past month.
Pierre-Louis, 61, is a close friend of Preval who since 1995 has headed FOKAL (the Foundation of Knowledge and Liberty), a non-governmental organization financed by American billionaire George Soros.
She is the third person chosen by Preval to succeed Jacques-Edouard Alexis, who was removed from office March 12 by a censure motion in parliament.
im glad to see that more and more women are in power Dope!...
