Ruling party convention bolsters Dominican leader

Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina’s growing influence over Dominican Republic’s ruling PLD party was evident yesterday during the tally of the votes to elect the 138 new members of its Central Committee.

Despite some technical difficulties and complaints, the vote count showed that candidates who support Medina over former president Leonel Fernandez won all 16 posts at stake in the South region and all 12 in the eastern region.

Medina’ strength was also proven by winning as many as 30 of the PLD’s 37 national posts up for grabs.
