Leonel Fernandez celebrates 60th birthday

President Leonel Fernandez was at Funglode to celebrate his 60th birthday yesterday Thursday 26 December with well-wishers for his return to the Presidency in 2016. “I always let matters be decided by time. 2013 has not ended and the election is in 2016, there is still plenty of time. I always will be aware of how the winds are blowing,” said Fernandez when referring to requests from supporters attending the Funglode event who would like to see him as the PLD candidate in 2016.

The president of the ruling party said he is working for the PLD to remain in power and continue its “historic cycle for the country.”

Fernandez served as President of the Republic from 1996-2000, 2004-2008 and 2008-2012.
