“Evil weed,” “soap in the soup” crumbles the opposition
Santo Domingo.- The veteran politico Hatuey De Camps, tapped as campaign chief by opposition PRD party presidential candidate Hipólito Mejía, has planted "evil weed" and become “the soap in the soup" in the organization’s rank and file.
The statement was made yesterday by the spokesman of the PRD deputies, Ruddy González, who criticized the meeting headed by De Camps with a group of his colleagues in Congress.
The lawmaker said Mejia’s campaign problems aren’t their fault, but of those who direct it. “There’s a need to keep a vigilant eye on Hatuey; I have my doubts with him. What he has brought is much noise; he has come to plant evil weed."
González said he didn’t attend the meeting because "Hatuey is not of the PRD," adding that just 39 of the PRD’s 75 deputies took part in the gathering. "There’d never been a division in the PRD block and now there is. Hatuey was the soap in the soup."
