Haiti's interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph.

Claude Joseph, the interim prime minister at the time of President Jovenel Moise’s killing, who claimed control of the country’s police and armed forces on July 7 said he has no interest in hanging on to power long-term. Joseph also revealed the three people seeking to become president have met with each other. 

“I do not have any affiliation to political parties, no personal agenda,” said Joseph during an interview with NPR that aired Friday, when asked about any potential involvement in the plot to assassinate the president.
