Mr. Rouzier, I repeat again, is a man of integrity. He was ready to make a sacrifice to take a position, because the country is in his heart. But, as fighters, Mr. Rouzier, the team of the President and myself, we will not spend much time to complain, we are going to put us to work. Mr. Rouzier is convinced that he will still serve the country, with or without position, currently this will be without position, but for us, he will be there for Haiti and we will start working in the coming hours.
We can see that moment as a moment of crisis to manage, crisis, because we do not have a Prime Minister-designate, but I tell you, too, there are many crises in parallel to this crisis. [...] Currently, it is important that we begin to act at the level of cholera, education, health, agriculture, security and many other things that need to be made in the country .
We will not lose time [...] we will convene our team to start working, to come up with solutions. We will not leave the Palace today, before knowing how we will do, or when we will start doing it [...]
...It is a struggle, as I always say, but we will not lose the battle and for those who was waiting that Mr. Rouzier receive a chance to serve his country, I tell you: Mr. Rouzier is in battle."
