Ruling, minority parties alliance seals first ballot win, Fernandez says

SANTO DOMINGO. – President Leonel Fernandez on Sunday said the alliance between the ruling PLD and minority PRSC parties seals the victory in the first balloting of Danilo Medina and Margarita Cedeño on May 20.

Fernandez, also president of the ruling PLD party, during the assembly in the Olympic Center to proclaim the “National Patriotic Agreement” between the PRSC and the PLD said it’s a political alliance to close “the bad path” and as in 1996, when he first took office, “will continue closed indefinitely.”

In his speech the chief executive said 16 years ago, on June 2, 1996, in that same place two prominent Dominicans, ex presidents Joaquin Balaguer and Juan Bosch, raised his hands to forge the Patriotic Front, “the former passing me torch, a torch that I will pass today to my successor, Danilo Medina, and to his running mate, Margarita Cedeño de Fernandez, that’s to say, Margarita de Leonel, an expression I use as a joke.”

PRSC president and Foreign Relations minister Carlos Morales also spoke in the assembly.
