The president of the Partido Revolucionario Moderno (Modern Revolutionary Party) (PRM), José Ignacio Paliza, said today that this organization will discuss in the coming days the proposal to modify the Constitution of the Republic to politically rehabilitate President Danilo Medina and unify the municipal and presidential elections.
He said that although the PRM has not set a position on the issue, that organization cannot remain isolated from the issues discussed in the country.
“We will see that topic in the next few days. The party cannot remain isolated from issues like that, ”said the PRM senator for Puerto Plata.
That proposal, authored by the president of the Christian Social Reform Party (PRSC), Federico Antún Batlle, has provoked support and rejection among the different sectors of Dominican society.
“The people are tired, very tired, let’s not invent more,” the Executive Vice President of the Institutional and Justice Foundation (Finjus), Servio Tulio Castaños Guzmán, said on the proposal of the president of the PRSC.
While the president of the (JCE) (Central Electoral Board), Julio César Castaños Guzmán, considered that “it would not be wise to modify the Constitution at this time, it is time for institutions to strengthen, we should not be distracted.”
Among the points suggested by the Colorado party for constitutional modification is the definitive adoption of the US model, which is two periods of four years and never again.
Paliza was interviewed on that and other issues in the Hoy Hoy program, which is produced in Color Vision, channel 9.
In another order, Paliza denied that there are official talks between the PRM and the PRD (Partido Revolucionario Dominicano) (Dominican Revolutionary Party) in around an agreement that allows them to participate together in the next elections.
However, he said that leaders of both parties have always promoted an approach.
“There have always been people from both sides who have wanted a unity in that direction,” he said.
He said the PRM has the goal of concluding “a great alliance with all organizations that want to take the Partido de la Liberacion Dominicana (PLD) (Dominican Liberation Party) out of power.”
“We are open to agreements, to conversations in search of an understanding,” he said.
Paliza considered it important that the Central Electoral Board monitor the use of state resources in this election campaign.
He said the PRM is gathering evidence to demonstrate the use of public money by the presidential candidates of the PLD. El Nacional Spanish version
