President Michael D. Higgins will undergo an elective medical procedure on Tuesday to relieve his back pain, reports Breaking News.
Under this procedure, the President will continue to perform his constitutional duties, including the consideration of legislation, from his home in Arras an Uchtarain, Dublin and Galway.
The trial the president will go through has been planned “for some time,” reports Breaking News.
A statement from his office said the process was ahead of a busy fall schedule, including several planned overseas engagements, and after the completion of “a substantial programme over the first half of the year”, reports Breaking News.
“It is anticipated that the President will carry out a reduced number of public engagements over the remaining weeks of the summer while he completes a short rehabilitation programme, during which time he will be preparing speeches for the autumn engagements and continuing to fulfil his constitutional duties,” the statement added, reports Breaking News.
