Santo Domingo.- The president of the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, has formally handed president Leonel Fernández the resolution approved by the UN against the volatility of food and fuel prices on the international markets.

The initiative, which received support from a wide range of international leaders, was promoted by the Dominican president with the aim of preventing speculation on food and fuel prices.

The resolution highlights the need to adopt measures for preventing “the excessive volatility of food prices, while recognizing that their causes are not yet sufficiently understood and need further study”.

During a ceremony at the National Palace yesterday, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser defined the initiative as a constructive contribution to the UN General Assembly and that through its approval the Dominican Republic has shown that all nations have important leadership roles to play. President Fernández defined it as a triumph for humanity.

The Dominican leader declared that although the approval of the initiative does not represent a solution in itself, it “paves the way” towards regulating the problem of speculation.

The resolution has no force at all and has been just an effort by Leonel to promote himself in that international lobby

Here is another little “Achievement” feather for Lie-onel’s hat or is it Margarita’s?

“In 2011 the corrupt acted with total impunity, according to report from PC”

“The “Declaration by Decree of 2011 as "Year of the transparency and the institutionalization", by the Executive Branch was failure, although some progress has been made as part of the project of anti-corruption participatory initiatives (IPAC), impunity with regard to the complaints of corruption and the continuous involvement of the staffs of agencies of public safety, increased drug trafficking and crime gave a rise to insecurity and disappointment in the society."
