VICE News journalist Nilo Tabrizy (https://twitter.com/ntabrizy) joined On The Line to take your questions about the turmoil over the presidency in Haiti.
Just a week after the departure of Former President Michel Martelly, lawmakers in Haiti have selected Jocelerme Privert as the country’s interim president.
Martelly ended his five-year term on February 7 amid often violent protests over alleged election fraud, and after the opposition candidate boycotted the vote.
The new president’s main task will be to quickly organize fresh elections. The interim government will have a 120-day term but should organize elections by April 24, and hand power over to the winner in May.
