What if Haiti President Martelly Suddenly decided to Call it Quits?

I've been wanting to raise this question: What if president Martelly had enough of the presidency and suddenly decided to LEAVE (rashe mayok li) like the opposition in Haiti wants so badly? Then I realize, someone already did raise the question... Read this from Agence haitienne de presse (AHP)

What if Martelly was, exhausted? What if he decided to leave and go live elsewhere?

A Latin diplomat told AHP Thursday that the problem with Haitians is that they are united when they must fight rightly or wrongly a head of state.

We would once again be viewed as a dysfunctional
