I want to say to President compliments, compliments for all your efforts to remove the Haitian people from poverty, hunger and despair. Today the team makes ONE nothing can separate it. I take this opportunity to thank the members of the legislative body, parliamentarians who work long hours, days and nights, I met with whom we discussed the problems of the country, and I thank you for the patriotic gesture you have done, when you're giving me your confidence to lead the Government.
President Martelly, May 14, 2011 you had promised to the citizens change, this change is not a last minute speech of a political campaign, this message is part of a vision, a commitment towards our country, with the Haitian people [...]
Today we celebrate the first anniversary of your presidency, and we begin a new stage in which the experience gained will enable us to move faster in rebuilding our country, our fellow can not wait [...] in the statement of General Policy approved by Parliament we indicate a way, a way clear and unequivocal to leave our fellow from extreme poverty and face the challenges of the country [...] the Government, the President, the Parliament with the judiciary will work together to change all that blocks the development of Haiti, it is my commitment. This way derives from a way agreed by many of our countrymen and follows a dialogue with the different sectors of society, the dialogue will be an indispensable tool for the rebuilding of Haiti [...]
The Challenges of Haiti are those of all sectors of society, without exclusions, no exceptions. We must all accept our responsibilities and commit ourselves in this way of the reconstruction.
Together we will rebuild Haiti [...] I repeat, together we will rebuild Haiti.
[...] The time for change has arrived, a new Haitian dream is possible. I know there are a lot of work, there will be lots of night where we can not sleep. I accepted this appointment, because I believe and that I have the willingness to serve my country, to work for my country, with you, together with the whole team, for that we succeed this mission.
The failure will not be acceptable.
[...] We want the Government's plan, the result of dialogue, is a social pact for access to political stability and cooperation of all to succeed in the shortest possible time and ensure political stability in Haiti as needed.
[...] My government and myself, have the historic responsibility to realize these changes, each minister, and I stress every minister, every Secretary of State, Director General and each employee of the state, must undertake to fulfill its responsibilities. The State will be the catalyst of change and those who are not able to meet the challenge, must give place, first myself.
[...] Thank you Mr. President again for your confidence and, I reiterate my engament to accomplish the mission expressed in the statement of General Policy, which has only one goal, the welfare of the Haitian people.
The time for change has come, we have no time to lose, we have no room for error.
At work, put our hands together, vive Haiti
