Haiti - FLASH : Former President a.i. Boniface Alexandre passed away (messages)
In the 1990s, Me Boniface Alexandre joined the Court of Cassaton, of which he was appointed President in 2002 by President Jean Bertand Aristide. Despite the strong ties that Boniface Alexandre had with Aristide, he was not a member of the Lavalas Party.
On February 29, 2004, Boniface Alexandre assumed the interim presidency of Haiti a few hours after the resignation and deportation of President Aristide.
He left office on May 14, 2006 after René Préval was elected president.
In October 2020 he joined President Jovenel Moïse to head the Independent Advisory Committee for the development of a draft new Constitution.
