Santo Domingo.- Two of president Danilo Medina’s most trusted officials and closest collaborators responded to statements by the ministers of the Economy, Isidoro Santana, and of Energy and Mines, Antonio Isa Conde, who separately voiced their rejection to a constitutional amendment to allow Medina’s reelection.

Senior ruling party (PLD) officials Gonzalo Castillo and José Ramón Peralta asked Santana and Isa Conde to wait for Medina’s statement on the topic of re-election before stating opposing positions.

Santana and Isa Conde are not members of the PLD, and are called “outsider” officials, the former is linked to civil society and the latter to the business community.

Peralta and Castillo spoke after participating in a surprise visit with Medina in San Cristóbal.

Castillo even recommend that they resign from their posts.
