He said after confirming that 99 percent of votes have been tallied OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza congratulates the Dominican people, President-elect Danilo Medina and Vice president-elect Margarita Cedeño, and all those who competed in the process.
The 71-member strong delegation of observers from 15 OAS Member States and six observant countries also praised the work by the JCE.
