Former President can lead OAS or even the UN, Senate chief says

Santo Domingo.- Senate president Reinaldo Pared yesterday said it’s "a slap in the face by ignoble souls to not recognize the exceptional conditions of former Dominican president Leonel Fernandez," who was nominated by 22 countries as secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS).

"Leonel Fernández not only has the capacity, experience and knowledge to lead the OAS, but even the United Nations, because the merits he accumulated in the course of his public career confirm it," said the also Secretary General of Dominican Republic’s ruling PLD Party, quoted by listin.com.do.

Pared said the mere fact that Fernández, President of the ruling party, has been mentioned by a score of countries, "implies a remarkable recognition of the public career of this man from the Dominican Republic, not only in his capacity as former President, but as a prominent politician."
