Santo Domingo.- Five senators and the president of the Chamber of Deputies yesterday stated their interest in reviewing all contracts with the power companies, coinciding with recent statements by president Danilo Medina.

The statements were voiced separately by Chamber of Deputies president Abel Martinez, and the senators Rafael Calderon, Dionis Sanchez, Amable Aristy, and Felix Nova, who called accused the power companies of forming an “energy cartel.”

Nova said “everything must be reviewed" in the electrical system and criticized that the crisis has benefited some sectors for years, in disregard of the consequences to the population.

Like Medina and his colleagues, the lawmaker affirmed that big problem is that those sectors have operated with the complicity of international agencies including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), but that "it was time to stop this situation," with the grand electric pact they said they’ll spearhead.

Martinez meanwhile said Medina speaks the truth when he blames the electrical problem for the huge deficit.

"Martinez meanwhile said Medina speaks the truth when he blames the electrical problem for the huge deficit.".....How about blaming Leo for the deficit, remember the time Leo borrowed $500,000,000USD to pay the tab but never made it to the cashier and no one questioned it!!!!!!

@Robert,

Yes, I was wondering whatever happened to that money, which had been clearly secured to address electric bill issue.

I wonder what Ali Baba did with the funds. Swiss account, yipetas, villas and a few new "queridas" come to mind.

This is what happens in a chaotic country, I mean dysfunctional, where there is absolutely no accountability and no control of the purse. This is almost like a feudalistic society, full of fiefdoms and with millions of serfs. I suppose things are so corrupted and screwed up that only a complete do-over would correct the situation, help us emerge into a prosperous and decent society under the rule of law.

MJEV.

He gave some to fools like JHCL so they can build low budget strip centers around the country.

That is why I say that JHCL is Leonel's Monica Lue. "Mamon"

All they want is a bigger piece of the pie while fooling the people into think they actually care about them. It is called populism.

Elbuscon,


Are you seriously calling for the murder of politicians?

Forget the fact the D.R. holds free and open elections and that the only one to blame for the leadership are the Dominican People themselves.

Anthony,

What is the difference here. One you kill people by starving them and the other is to take them out by force. Anytime that Force is used you are going to have some dead people on both sides of the line.

So if it makes you feel any better this morning,

I SAY YES

You also said,

Very true, But what do you do in a case like this where all the politicians do is lie to the Dominican People and then steal from them.

Let the Blood shed begin

Alpha 66 you disagree with this?

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them." --Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356

So what you are trying to say is that the "Poor" Dominican people want a government that steals, lies, raises taxes, and gives the no hope.

You are one SICK PUPPY, you should lay off the crack or do a bunch at one time and OD. I would prefer the secound option.

How about this ALPHA66?



"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere." --Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1787.

I agree with expropriating there ill-gotten wealth and sending them to jail, however I would not support the final part of your sentence, as Lie-onel and most of the fruit cakes on the PLD's Political Committee would enjoy that!
