Rudy Hérivaux Accuses Media of Driving a Disinformation Campaign

On Thursday, April 3, 2014, Dr. Rudy Hérivaux, a former senator and leader of Confidence Party has accused the press for driving a "purposeful disinformation campaign" to defame the government and "polluting" the political field. Although the press has achieved democratic status, it is a fact that there are very few good reporting and devoted political analysts among the news correspondents. When they do not get enough political ingredients to serve an entertaining item, fill the plate with football spices and serve as an item of political menu.


Dr. Hérivaux has been installed as the new Minister of Communication in place of the outgoing minister Josette Darguste. Mrs. Darguste has described the new minister as a personality with excellent communication skills.
Haiti's Lavalas movement took birth in the 1980s during the struggle against the Duvalier dictatorship. The Fanmi Lavalas or Lavalas Family strongly supports every public declaration which comes from any of its representative family members. Their movements were nurtured mostly by some Catholic priests, under the direction of Father Aristide from his Salesian parish of St. Jean Bosco in the Port-au-Prince. There are two branches of Lavalas Family: one is headed by Annettet Auguste, Yvon Neptune (former head of government), and Senator Yvon Buissereth as members whereas the other is run under the leadership of Senator Rudy Hérivaux and Maryse Narcisse.

Dr. Rudy Hérivaux, the new Minister of Communication has stated that most important part of his new assignment will be to stop these infernal mechanical disinformation. He has promised to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry in a way so that proper representation of every important government policy and action is made. The existence of an amicable relationship is very essential between the Ministry and the media. He has no intention ever to silence or undermine the role of media in the country.
