Musician Wyclef Jean announces that he has taken formal steps towards running for President of Haiti in the 2010 general election but has not yet decided on a candidacy.
Suspects in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse say that their intent was to arrest, not kill, Moïse. The two Haitian-American suspects say that they were working as translators for the Colombian suspects and that they had an arrest warrant against Moïse, but found him dead when they arrived.
Haitian opposition names judge Joseph Mécène Jean-Louis from the Supreme Court the new interim President of Haiti to lead a "transitional government" after arguing that incumbent Jovenel Moïse's term has expired and calling on him to step down. The Organization of American States considers that Moïse's five-year term ends in 2022 as he took office in 2017.
