An OAS official tells The Associated Press that top Haitian leaders have reached an agreement to install a provisional government less than a day before President Michel Martelly is scheduled to step down.

Special mission leader Ronald Sanders said Saturday that the interim president will be elected by Parliament for a term of 120 days. He said Prime Minister Evens Paul will remain in his position until lawmakers confirm a new prime minister in upcoming days.

The interim government will continue an electoral process that began last year. It will hold a second round of presidential and legislative elections on April 24. A new president is scheduled to be installed on May 14.
