PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - After 18 months by the government and the Haitian population, the Minister of Communication and Culture, which has always distinguished by his skill and charisma, is bowing out.
For health reasons, Marie Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue left the government for treatment of multiple sclerosis which she had been suffering from for some time.
"I had to suffer two (2) significant medical treatment during the months of June and July 2011; I would enjoy the change of government to make them. I canceled the first appointment. I can see the second, decisive for the future of my health. So I will be traveling Saturday, July 23," according to a letter from Ms. LassÃ¨gue addressed to the Prime Minister, Jean-Max Bellerive. A copy was sent to the president as well.
"I see myself obliged to inform you that I will stop to liquidate the current business, on July 22, 2011," says the letter dated July 11.
Ms. LassÃ¨gue concluded in her correspondence the hope that the next government is installed as soon as possible.
The minister resigned also sent a letter with virtually the same content to different groups of women in the country. "Do not worry about me," she told the news this Friday, July 22 less than 24 hours before her departure to Canada, where she must seek treatment for multiple sclerosis.
With such a disease, no one really knows how she did it to perform her function so effectively. Marie Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue, also know as Lolo, must withdraw for some time to follow his treatment in a calm and away from seeds daily.
