UN entourage size will test Medina’s campaign pledge
Santo Domingo.- The size of the delegation which will accompany president Danilo Medina on his first trip abroad since taking office will put his campaign slogan “To do what’s never been done” to the test.
"The commission which will accompany the President will be what’s ??strictly necessary due to the austerity plans implemented by the Government," said a source today quoted by elnacional.com.do.
Medina, who’ll participate in the 67th UN General Assembly, has yet to announce the day he’ll leave and the official delegation which will attend the UN activities which start Tuesday.
"It’s not clear neither the day nor the hour that the President will participate in the UN General Assembly," the source in the National Palace said on Medina’s first trip to the US since taking office August 16.
