Ariel Henry is a 71-year-old neurosurgeon.

The power struggle that emerged in Haiti after the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse appears to be coming to an end.

Claude Joseph, the man who took control of the government after the assassination and who previously held the post of prime minister, announced that he will resign on Tuesday and hand over power to Ariel Henry.

The announcement comes after a period of great uncertainty in the country following the assassination of the president.

Henry had been appointed prime minister two days before Moïse’s death, but he was not invested in the position.
