Haiti’s new president, Jovenel Moise, takes the oath of office on Tuesday in Port au Prince

PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti -- Haiti’s new president, Jovenel Moise, took the oath of office on Tuesday in Port au Prince.

The 48-year-old Moise, a banana exporter, had won the first round of voting in October 2015, but the results were annulled and a re-run held in November 2016 in which he won 55 percent of votes cast.

At the National Palace before a crowd of several thousand people, Haitian and foreign political personalities, Moïse delivered his first speech to the nation as president, in which he highlighted among other things the importance of unity between Haitians for the progress of the country.

The new president has also pledged to work to ensure that the people of the diaspora who want to return to the country can do it without problems and to work today so that in five years the outcome is positive.

Caribbean Community (CARICOM) chairman, President David Granger of Guyana, represented the Community at the inauguration of the new Haitian president.
