Florida Governor Bush Heading Presidential Delegation to Haiti


The White House says Florida Governor and President Bush's brother Jeb will lead a delegation to Haiti for Sunday's inauguration of incoming Haitian President René Préval.

A statement issued Monday said U.S. Ambassador to Haiti Janet Ann Sanderson and M. Rony Francois, Secretary of the Florida Department of Health, also will comprise the presidential delegation announced by President Bush.

The incoming Haitian leader won the presidency in February, following a campaign of promises to improve social conditions and education for Haitians. The vote ushered in the first democratically elected government in Haiti since the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004.

Mr. Préval first held the presidency from 1996 to 2001.
