New Dominican Republic province draws wide rebuke

Image Diario Libre

Santo Domingo.- The approval in the Chamber of Deputies of the Matías Ramón Mella province has generated the rejection of different sectors of the national level.

In this regard, the urban planner and architect Marcos Barinas Uribe considered that the arguments to create the Matías Ramón Mella province are not conclusive and that it is necessary to study this possibility in greater depth.

He considers that this initiative should be part of a territorial ordering plan and that “until now it appears to be an intention of an electoral nature.”

Really dislike this type of media reporting when there is no basic background information as why there there is a call to form a new province and reasons for a rebuke. It is like putting up a cake for sale and then providing the consumer not even a slice, just frosting and sprinkles only.

There is no 5 W’s here, who, what, when, where, and why.

This freaking democracy continues to cost more (more Senators and Deputies) and complicating (slowing down) the reaction of democracy to any chronic or acute crisis since more Senators/Deputies need to be convinced of any future proposals. The government becomes more inefficient this way.
No more fat checks, new corruptions, and expansion of pensions & healthcare paid for the added politicians. The country is already saturated and choked with politicians and the people don’t have the money (or don’t want to borrow more money) to expand the government.
Enough!!!! If you want Mella’s name, then rename one of the existing provinces (get rid of the communist names)!

This is seem by some as a campaign by politicos to create more government seats to fill. Guess who will be deciding who will fill the seats? It is marketed as it will bring gov’t services closer to the people of the areas, saving them from the long travels to government offices. If they truly want to bring gov’t services to the people, rent/build offices, and shuffle present staffs to fill them.
