Santo Domingo.- Wednesday’s announced bid for the National Palace by the president of Dominican Republic’s major opposition party (PRD) brought the immediate response from his rival and former President, who called it “crazy.”

Miguel Vargas’ announcement to seek his party's presidential candidacy for the 2016 elections came during a press conference where ex PRD leader and former senator Tonty Rutinel Dominguez returned to the organizatoni.

"We’ve never denied that we want to be president,” Vargas said when reporters asked about by the decor in the salon at PRD headquarters with banners stating "Miguel 2016."

Vargas’ announcement spurred the gabby former president Hipolito Mejia to call the bid "crazy."

Mejia noted that the PRD’s presidential candidacy should be decided at a convention where PRD leaders and rank and file participate, as established in its statutes. "The PRD is a democratic party and decisions must be taken respecting its institutionalism."

Tempest in a teapot.

These guys are only looking for media attention. The PRD has nothing to offer the country. They need to offer someone fresh, new, rather than the foul sancocho they have been serving the public

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result

These guys are insane.

By the way that also applies to the PLD. They continue to serve up a bunch of thieves and expect them not to rob us blind. Over and over again.

The problem that denies change is the parties keep offering the same selection of fruit from their small basket. They are not going to deviate or diversify the menu to offer different fruit to the public They would be taking too much risk.

Bro,

Remember that Guillermo El Moreno only got 3 votes out of 4 in his own home. That's when he realized that there was no "vida" with his project, so decided to rent himself out to the PPH and its lider the Mamagronomo Hipolito Dislocado Mejia.

God bless....

Por eso habrá PLD por mucho y a lo largo...

I know, 23 years in the making with a true leader as a back bone(J. Bosch)
Not this GM, he still need a few more years, and still won't get Bosch's leadership status, okay pumpkin.

Never forgotten. 4 more years of LF or MC would be the final kiss of death for my beloved Quisqueya. They are without question slime and nothing more. Immoral low life without any redeeming values whatsoever. They deserve to be jailed for life.

I hope the next election brings forth some real candidates who want to bring decency to DR.

Possibley Guillermo Moreno however, he has baggage and PLD has a hold on DR worse than a bad case of amoebas.
