PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- Haiti's Parliament has overwhelmingly approved a new Cabinet that includes members from six political parties, a strong show of support for President Rene Preval as he steers the impoverished nation toward peace and stability.

In a vote late Wednesday, 84 of 86 deputies in the lower house voted to approve the 18-member Cabinet, which was unanimously endorsed by the Senate a day earlier.
