Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic – A new collective has urged a million Dominicans to join to support the stay of President Danilo Medina in power, a day after the president said he will speak “almost, almost” on the issue of re-election.
This is “1 million with the re-election”, which through its web platform (http://1millonconlareeleccion.com/) asks the head of government to listen to them, while summoning a million Dominicans “so that our voices reach your ears. ”
The collective, to which more than 1,500 people have joined, indicates in their petition that they seek to constitute “one million Dominicans who wish our country to continue building its future with a vision based on work and social commitment”.
They urge Medina, who returned yesterday from Panama after participating in the inauguration of President Laurentino Cortizo, to “take the step”, referring to the amendment of the Constitution to promote his reelection.
“1 million with reelection” is a citizen initiative created and coordinated by Felix Lantigua, Ricardo Ruiz, Patricia Fernandez, Joan Jimenez, Carlos Lara and Carlos Restituyo.
