Jean Henry Céant (born 27 September 1956) is a Haitian politician who was the twenty-first Prime Minister of Haiti.

Prime Minister[edit]

Céant was chosen by President Jovenel Moïse to become Prime Minister of Haiti in August 2018. He was chosen to succeed Jack Guy Lafontant, who had resigned due to an economic crisis. Céant is a notary by profession and was a presidential candidate in 2016. Ceant also leads a political organization called Renmen Ayiti.[1][2][3]

On 18 March 2019, Céant's government was dissolved after a 93–6 vote of censuring the government and enacting a motion of no confidence.[4]
