Soudas stated that he intends to his post on September 5th. He has been Harper’s Communications Director since April 2010, while before that, the 31-year-old politician worked as a Press Secretary and served as Quebec adviser to the Prime Minister. “He has served the Prime Minister with immense passion, loyalty and commitment, not to mention sacrifice,” PMO spokeswoman Sara MacIntyre said in an email. She said those who have worked with the indefatigable father of three young children, “remain in awe of his dedication, loyalty and tenacity.”
Harper paid tribute to his spokesman last week by visiting a village in Greece that was the scene of a Second World War Nazi massacre that claimed the life of Soudas’s grandfather. The Huffington Post reports that it is yet not known who will replace Soudas.
