SANTO DOMINGO.- The Organization of American States OAS observers delegation (OAS) yesterday announced it will recommend to its headquarters that the next Dominican or ruling party’s President "not have a strong incidence in the electoral processes."
OAS Delegation leader Tabare Vazquez declined however to specify if the suggestion stems from president Leonel Fernandez’s active participation in the ruling PLD party’s electoral campaign. “I’m neither voicing a value judgment, nor making any type of criticism."
