    interesting article in el caribe today regarding violence associated with elections. in the last 26 years 200 people were killed during political campaigns. 1994 was the bloodiest, with 40 deaths. that was the year when peña gomez lost to balaguer in what was allegedly a very dirty and violent election. following that there were 16 deaths in 1996 (leonel won against peña gomez), 13 deaths in 2000 (hipolito won against danilo and balaguer) and 19 deaths in 2004 (leonel won in primera vuelta).

    so far, 3 people were killed in this electoral process: mateo aquino febrillet (PRM, march), erasmo antonio medina and yeral pérez y pérez (both PLD, december).

    And now, security in and around Las Americas airport and Puerto Multimodal Caucedo is being stepped up amidst fears of threats from truckers' association as their leader appears in court.
    I guess they want to show us who really owns the country.

    Interesting. You cannot stand if you have a criminal record i.e. una afficha, but I don't think you get that until found guilty. However the JCE can reject any candidacy which they have to do by Friday I think. Plus registration was yesterday so he might have not been able to register.
