“I am leaving the post of prime minister with the feeling that work was accomplished,” Lamothe said in a 2:00 a.m. address to the nation.

Martelly said Friday that Lamothe was ready to resign in response to a recommendation from the Consultative Council, a body created by the president and composed of members from different sectors of Haitian society.

Haiti has been rocked by a wave of political instability unleashed by the opposition, which has staged daily protests to demand that Martelly and Lamothe resign.

The opposition accuses the two men of leading a corrupt government and has called for the release of political opponents jailed during the October protests.
