Gov. Ricardo Rossello, The Governor Of Puerto Rico, Has Resigned After Weeks Of Protests

The embattled leader of Puerto Rico, Gov. Ricardo Rossello, has resigned after weeks of protest and multiple declarations that he would remain in office through January 2021.

The people of Puerto Rico erupted into celebration late last night after Rossello made the announcement in a live-streamed message.

He and his staff are accused of making homophobic, misogynistic and sexist comments against opponents and critics, in addition to mocking victims of Hurricane Maria.

Rossello has faced intense pressure from protesters and politicians to step down after the leak of the offensive text messages between himself and his top aides.

 In a lengthy message, the Governor cited the accomplishments of his administration when it came to infrastructure, corruption reforms and LGBT rights. He also noted the challenges the island faced after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“I hope that this decision will serve as a call for citizen reconciliation that we need so much to move forward with the welfare of Puerto Rico as its north,” Rossello said in the remarks announcing his resignation. “I complete my mandate, and the most I desire is peace and progress.”

His resignation will be effective Aug. 2 at 5 p.m.

Secretary of Justice Wanda Vazquez will become the next governor of Puerto Rico.
