President Abinader vows continued reforms and democratic strengthening

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader has reaffirmed his commitment to advancing necessary reforms and leaving a legacy of democratic strengthening. During a ceremony where the Central Electoral Board (JCE) officially recognized him as the winner of the May 19 presidential election, Abinader emphasized that the nation is at a pivotal point in its history.

“My commitment to you is firm. We will continue to promote the reforms necessary to open a new era in the history of our nation and leave a legacy of democratic strengthening, consolidation of our institutions, and sustainable development that reaches all Dominicans,” Abinader declared.

At the event, the JCE also certified Raquel Peña as the re-elected vice president, along with 264 new legislators, including senators, deputies, and deputies to the Central American Parliament (Parlacen).

Abinader stressed that the majority achieved by the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM) will solely serve the interests of the Dominican people. He urged everyone to unite over the next four decisive years, focusing on the shared goal of improving the country and advancing the well-being and progress of all Dominicans.

“As president of all, without distinctions, no Dominican should feel left out of the process of change we are undertaking,” Abinader assured. He called for hard work and transparency, emphasizing that representing citizens is an honor that requires utmost integrity and honesty.

The president reiterated his administration’s commitment to transparency and the efficient use of public resources. “Today, I reaffirm my commitment to ensure that State resources are used efficiently and for the benefit of all Dominicans. The scrupulous honesty of public representatives is essential for trust and credibility in our institutions,” Abinader stated.

Acknowledging the challenges ahead, Abinader expressed confidence in overcoming obstacles through collective effort. He thanked the Dominican people for their trust and the Central Electoral Board for conducting exemplary elections, which he described as transparent, fair, and efficient.

Abinader also expressed gratitude to all political parties for their participation, noting that diverse opinions and proposals enrich society and strengthen democracy.

The JCE officially declared President Luis Abinader and Vice President Raquel Peña winners of the May 19 general elections, with 2,507,297 votes, or 57.44%. President Abinader was accompanied by First Lady Raquel Arbaje, his mother Sula Corona, his sister Rita Abinader, and his mother-in-law Margarita Soneh.

I admire President Abinader’s work ethics , energy and commitment. He will leave a legacy of change. However it is time to start Public Consultation. Government Projects happen in communities and no one knows anything about them until construction starts. . Public Consultation teaches democracy at every public meeting when residents are asked for their views. The lack of debates during the elaction shows the lack of concern for public participation.
