Ruling party cofounder says colleague should be in prison

F. Bautista.

Santo Domingo.- Dominican ruling party (PLD) senior member Felix Jiménez, on Mon. said that San Juan de la Maguana senator and colleague Felix Bautista should be in prison, and should have left with former president Leonel Fernández.

He said that as a PLD candidate, Bautista is “under the magnifying glass.”

“I think that all those who are Leonel-sickened should have left with Leonel, but he crouches down,” said Jiménez, interviewed on “Hoy Mismo,” Color Vision, channel 9.

He said Fernández only governed for his group and didn’t give participation to the others.

“Suppose now that the PRD chooses a potable candidate for us, for whom are the PLD members going to vote, for that individual who should be imprisoned?”
