Haiti's parliament has rejected the nomination of presidential adviser Robert Manuel to be prime minister. Lawmakers say Manuel failed to meet basic qualifications for the No. 2 post, arguing that he does not own property in Haiti and is not registered to vote. The Chamber of Deputies' 57-26 vote Thursday means the impoverished country will enter a third month without a head of government or Cabinet. The Senate ousted Prime Minister Jacques Edouard Alexis on April 12 following days of food riots. Manuel, a former security chief and friend of President Rene Preval, is the second nominee Haitian lawmakers have rejected so far this year.
