Tue May 30 2006 (Updated 06/12/06) Haiti Updates
Few Haitians went to the polls April 21st for the second round of parliamentary voting. Voters cast ballots at 804 voting centres to elect 27 senators and 83 deputies. The second round of elections had been set for March but was delayed because of the volume of complaints from the first round in February.

On May 14th, René Garcia Préval, was sworn in as Haiti's president. Preval's inauguration had been scheduled for March 2, but was postponed due to delays in holding the legislative run-off election.

On May 22nd, Préval nominated Jacques Edouard Alexis to be prime minister. Alexis also served as Préval's prime minister from March 26th 1999 to February 7th 2001. Like Préval, Alexis is an agronomist and was formerly a senior member of the faculty at the agronomy and veterinary medicine unit within the University of Quisqueya. On May 24th, Haiti's Senate ratified Alexis and on May 30th he was approved by Haiti's Deputies Chamber. On June 9th, Alexis and his Cabinet were sworn in.
