Under harsh self-rebuke, ruling party holds key meeting
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina and former president Leonel Fernandez are = heading a meeting of the Political Committee the party of Dominican Republic’s ruling PLD party being held behind closed doors Thursday morning.
The meeting comes just hours after senior PLD leader and co-founder Euclides Gutierrez Felix slammed his own organization, affirming that it was becoming “Perredeizada,” in reference to the opposition party, the PRD, known for constant infighting.
Contrary to his reputation of unpunctual, Fernandez arrived at 9:04am to the meeting scheduled for 9am, while Medina showed up a few minutes earlier at 8:58am.
Another harsh critic of his own party, senior leader José Tomás Pérez upon arrival at the meeting asked prudence from those members who campaigned to enter the PLD’s Central Committee in last Sunday’s elections.
