Amid a wave of bloody clashes between protesters and the police, Haitian president Michel Martelly stepped down from office on Sunday, leaving the Caribbean nation with no successor.

On Saturday, with less than 24 hours before Martelly’s scheduled departure, Haiti’s parliament drafted an agreement allowing the election of an interim president for a four-month term. A presidential runoff to decide Martelly’s successor in December 2015 was postponed indefinitely due to allegations of fraud.




VICE News travels to Haiti, where anti-government protesters are clashing with police as the country faces a future without a leader, and struggles to achieve political stability.
