Haitian Senate postpones inauguration of interim president
"Senators decided to postpone inauguration set for today. They want to be present in full strength," Lambert tweeted. "It is utterly important to restore the hope in our country," he added.
On Friday, the Tet Kale party suggested appointing Lambert to the office of the interim president until the new president is elected. Lambert is expected to be the head of state until inauguration of the new elected president in February 2022.
