Prime Minister of Haiti
Haitian President René Préval, following the orders of a senate resolution, nominated Bellerive on 30 October 2009, to replace former Prime Minister Michèle Pierre-Louis. A day before the nomination, on 29 October 2009, 18 senators of a 29-member senate had voted to dismiss Pierre-Louis on charges that she was performing poorly in leading Haiti's economic recovery efforts in the wake of the destructive 2008 hurricane season.
On 14 May 2011, Bellerive resigned as Prime Minister, so as to allow the country's new President, Michel Martelly, to choose his own Prime Minister. Martelly selected Daniel Gérard Rouzier to succeed Bellerive. However, the parliament rejected Mr Rouzier.
