    Default So Leonel Quits the PLD and Forms a New Party

    "The People's Force"

    Leonel renuncia del PLD, dice en el 2020 «E’ pa’ fuera que van» y crea partido «La Fuerza del Pueblo»

    Not sure how it impacts 2020---isn't there a law that says if you lose in the primary you can't run in a different party?---but the guy is obviously bitter.

    Interesting times.

    Gonna take a really large slice of some sweet pie to get him back on board with the PLD.

    A lot of chatter about the death of the PLD.

    it's so ridiculous, I would laugh about it, if it wasn't going to destabilize our country.

    Leonel and his guys had to "buy" a small party (Partido de los Trabajadores Dominicanos) in order to run. And they renamed it:

    "La Fuerza del Pueblo", that is "L F P", Or: "Leonel Fernandez Presidente" (it reminds me of the PPH, back in the days)

    It probably means LFP will have to get in bed with PRM. So cynical, so ruthless...

    Basically it says "I don't give a **** about anything, I just want to be back in power"

    He probably ran into debt during the past 8 years, thinking he will be able to pay it off in the 2020 - 2024 term. Change of plans and he's screwed, hence he's desperate.

    Could be...

    We had a metting set Sunday with an old family friend who is anxious to help with a project we've been working on. He lives in the rarified air of the PLD and his name has been mentioned often on DR1.

    He called aroujnd 3pm, the time of our meeting, to reschedule. His reason was "things have gotten complicated today." We thought he had some family problems, or was blowing us off.

    Guess things did, indeed, get complicated Sunday for him.

    Leonel is not in debt. Quite the opposite. He is panic-stricken of the global theatre finding the amounts of wealth he and the Mrs. have stolen, received as bribes (South American Drug Cartels and US of A Professional Baseball to name just two entities), and then squirreled away during his terms of office.
