Sam Beausoleil was appointed as the general director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday, replacing Fortuné Dorléans.

Scores of government officials were present at the ceremony. Dorléans, who headed the ministry for seven years, was not among the attendees. Government officials did not say whether his term was up or give any reason for the replacement at this time.

Beausoleil is a former ambassador of Haiti to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). In accepting the post, he said, “The ministry has seen me grow now this is my opportunity to serve it.” Source
