Haiti’s Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe has delayed a speech on his possible resignation as protesters call for both him and the country’s president to step down.

Street protests have dragged on for weeks as demonstrators demand overdue elections.

A regional ballot has been delayed for three years while Senate elections should have been held two years ago.

One poster on a placard read “Vladimir Putin, please help us!”

Many protesters want former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide back.

President Michel Martelly agreed on Friday to ask the prime minister to step down after accepting the recommendations of a presidential commission on breaking the political deadlock.
