Catholic church asks to vote with awareness, respect results

Santo Domingo.- The Catholic Church yesterday asked citizens to vote with awareness in Sunday’s elections as well as pray so once the electoral competition concludes, “the will of the people, expressed in the ballot boxes is respected by all the political parties and their respective candidates.”

In a statement issued Monday, the Dominican Episcopate Conference also called on the catholic faithful to a day of prayer and reflection on Saturday, the day before the elections for the Presidency and Overseas deputies.

“We urge all Dominicans so that we participate in a massive way with enthusiasm exerting the right to vote during the next elections, that we do so in a peaceful and ordinate manner. That we do it peacefully, freely and for the candidate of our choosing,” the bishops said.
