Leonel must be happy now that Luis is destroying the old PLD. So there will be only 2 big parties: PRM & LFP.

I have said privately for a long time.....
Rep Dom is NOT a poor country

In normal times, count the tourism dollars
Exports are good & growing
The gold mine pays BIG money

The former 'Mrs. Pres' had 600 people on her staff..... 600 !!!!
Now, less than 10 perhaps

Like Papa Doc & Baby Doc....... Rep Dom....

Nope, the DR is not poor, and 3rd world only because of lack of infrastructure and education, which both go right back to government stupidity as well. There are many countries, that are actually poor, have no resources etc. The DR is not one of those.

Yes, she had 600 people working, and then the other official had 10k USD credit monhtly allowance, no questions asked... Way to go... At the same time, there is no running water in many areas, the public schools/hospitals etc. are a disgrace etc...

I have said it many times to my wife: If people simply would not stand up for this cr*p, they would perhaps do something, but there are people that are just happy when a politico throws them a few pesos from the back of his camioneta on a caravana... That nothing more and nothing less than full disrespect and abuse of your own people... And there are many people who don't know any better, unfortunately...

Dominicans are like bloodhounds. They can sniff out money anywhere. The justice officials should have no trouble following the money. The question is do they really want to? Or are they prepared for the consequences of doing so?

It will take a lot more than just a few arrests before we can call this a new trend or even a departure from the norm.

in a few years we will know what it is worth for.
as far as of Now, just 100 days on the seat,
I have to admit that I really like Luis and his way to go on things.
and that's ME, the absolute anti-political-party ole times rebel,
but so far he has my respect for the way he is moving the steering wheel to.
what the country then needs is constancy of all that, the GUARANTEE that things will keep moving into that direction.
to do so, it is necessary that such "anti corruption" governing will be with a independend control mechanism be included in our constitution/written in Stone in a way so that future governments could not do a easy turn on the wheel backwards towards new Ladroneles and Corrudinas.
and i see exactly that to be prepared to happen before this 4 years term is over, because it is exactly that he has to make real changes to last, 4 years.
I see the local DR Economy without the Tourism part as a really strong thing, good situated for such small country and quiet strong even against this Pandemic.
And Tourism will come back up step by step to complete the needed income for this government with it's big plans,
as procedures on the health care system, infrastructure, education and in the energy sector are super costy and kicked off during a never seen Pandemic.
I really see a chance that this small DR could manage such big turn on the wheel,
to really put it's wealth into the things which will on the mid and long term really be for it's people.
without doubt Education is the far most leaking part of that big package, where they have to do big to see in just a few years time already positive fruits,
because on today's education we are really still in the stone age.

Which one, all of the previous ones? Do you think the PLD don't have all the info on the thieving Hipolito and his government did?
Oh I’m pretty sure there are many and all should be prosecuted ...🍿 you can definitely tell a new sheriff is in town...
