Remarks by the Secretary General of the Council of Ministers
“The restoration of State authority is the essential condition for the protection of citizens. Certain discursive actions and practices delegitimizing the State create the conditions essential for the acute social, political and economic misery that some denounce. The greatest President Haiti has ever known, Léon Dumarsais Estimé was accused of corruption, victim of a coup and ended his days in exile. The false revolutionary is one whose actions maintain the status quo or are only repetitions of the past,” Renald Lubérice, Secretary General of the Council of Ministers.
