Michel Martelly is keeping the population guessing as to his choice for the next Prime Minister. Several names have been in circulation; however only two have been confirmed to be serious candidates. They are Wilson Laleau and Daniel Supplice.
Forget about other names that have appeared on the list of possible candidates for Prime Ministers. It has been common practices in Haiti for some people to include their own names in high government functions that have become vacant just for the publicity and name recognition.
The two candidates rumored to be on the final list of President Michel Martelly are well qualified for the Prime Minister position and also do not carry baggage that would make it hard to get a consensus. Professor Wilson Laleau is the current Vice Rector of Academic Affairs at the Universite d’Etat d’Haiti. Sociologist Daniel Supplice is also a well respected educator.
