Santo Domingo. - The internal crisis in Dominican Republic’s major opposition party (PRD) made headlines again Wednesday, when the main groups vying for its control have different activities planned to mark the s76th anniversary of the birth of its late leader Jose Francisco Peña Gomez.

PRD president Miguel Vargas laid a wreath at Peña’s tomb, where he affirmed that the organization’s late leader is reborn every day lives in the heart of all Dominicans.

After the first activity to commemorate Peña, Vargas went to PRD headquarters with a group of leaders of the Social Democratic Women’s Federation, to lay another wreath at Peña’s bust.

But Hipolito Mejia, ex president and Vargas’ rival within the PRD, also headed a ceremony with the party’s women, to mark International Women's Day and announced he will visit the grave at 11am.

Mr. Gomez win 94 elections, Balaguer defraud him and under Itl. Pressure he call for new elections two yrs. Later. Then Balaguer endorsed an unknown character call Leo with Billy the Kid blessing. The rest is history. Then privatization, narco traffictraffics and corruption like no other. Who is taking notes for DR "Historia Patria", in the past was easy to tamper with the truth.

One day you'll willl ask, What If......!

In the PRD old and new, they have always been a bunch of thugs in the nation.

Pena Gomez was another thug, and a Haitian hypocrite from the same party of rats.

Reason why Balaguer stopped him on his tracks.

Juan Bosch had to leave that party of thugs, to avoid his good name from being tarnished,

All of Balaguer's elections were fraud - with US encouragement.

Pena lost because the US worked with RD to have Balaguer supporters vote for Leonel, to defeat Pena. The US hated Pena, as they hated Juan Bosch. Probably still some fraud, so that Leonel election was guaranteed.

Balaguer a true Dominican Nationalist like no other.

Both Balaguer and Bosch were DOMINICAN NATIONALISTS,

and since Pena was Haitian he was stopped in his tracks.

Poor dumb soul, Louis Pierre (alias Pena Gomez) was,

he lived most of his life in DR, and could still not understand politics as usual in here.

He was used by Balaguer, and died dreaming of a union, like Pena, Boyer, and you will Jasfalon.


Viva el DOCTOR BALAGUER, and his political mastery ways !!!!

@ rockete In the us a doctor died after an accident he was not admitted to an all white only hospital. He was black, he was the first dr. To succeed in an open heart operation. A great lost to the human race. A child a white child in a prenatal care unit father did not want a nurse an experience nurse who has many years under her belt to take care of his child,which could've died but his racism is stronger then the love he has for his child. Don't you think it's time for you to change

Henry Cristophe your great Hatian hero,

killed more than 10,000 Dominicans mostly women and children,

in the Cibao region in the year 1805.

Specially in Moca where Haitians decapitated 40 children, in the altar of the church.

Why ?? Because they where white in the color of their skin.

Haitians have invaded our country at least 7 times.

when was the last time Dominicans invaded Haiti ??

After the Haitian revolution took place,

your people decided to murder all white french occupants there.

The French used slavery as an economic gain of the era, not because they hated black people.

Who has demonstrated to be the real racist in ((La Espanola)).

Haitians of course !!!!

There is a old saying in English:

"What goes around comes around".

and : "You get what you pay for"

According to you, Pena (Louis Pierre) was the only true Dominican, right?

He serves your purpose, doesn't he, Correct ?

On the other hand,

I guess Cristopher Colombus was Haitian, and Nicolas De Ovando too.

Rokete I will suggest that you stick two of your fingers in your behind and then insert them in both of your nostril.

What happened in the past is just that, the past.

Move on.!
