Ousted former president lashes out at the Dominican government

Santo Domingo.- Former president Hipolito Mejia on Tuesday said it’s impossible for Miguel Vargas, president of Dominican Republic’s opposition PRD party, to expel him from the organization let alone by its Disciplinary Board.

Mejia said the real purpose could be to “play the government’s game” and noted that given its importance, politics wasn’t a place to do business.

In a press conference at the José Francisco Peña Gómez Institute in the heels of the Disciplinary Board’s decision to expel him and other senior leaders, the ex president announced that he’ll convene the PRD Political Commission for next Tuesday, and called on the party’s "line of the masses" to establish the opposition to the Administration headed by president Danilo Medina.

I that regard, Andres Bautista, acting PRD chairman also ousted by the Disciplinary Board, said the purge was all a plot hatched by ex president Leonel Fernandez, and Medina.
