SANTO DOMINGO.- Former President Leonel Fernández will broadcast to the country through a radio and television network tonight, October 13 at 10 p.m., about the crisis unleashed in the Dominican Liberation Party ( PLD ), after the Primary open on October 6.

The information was offered by the Director of Communication of the Leonel 2020 Project, Rafael Núñez, through his Twitter account.

“The former president @LeonelFernandez, president of @PLDenlinea, will speak to the whole country this Sunday at 10 p.m. on a radio and television network,” he published.

He specified that Fernandez will refer to the crisis in the internal primary peledeístas by Telemicro as the parent channel.

Great expectation reigns in the country, before the claims of the forces that support Leonel Fernández, who have exhausted legal procedures to demonstrate what they consider unprecedented electoral fraud.

The Central Electoral Board has refused to respond to the request for a forensic technical audit, to determine the source of fraud in the primaries of the PLD at the presidential level.

In the manual count that lasted less than 24 hours, when the same president of the electoral body argued that it would last for months, he yielded differences to what was previously reflected in the electronic transmission of the JCE.

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic has the potential to develop an exportable aquaculture, according to the Dominican Agribusiness Board’s (JAD) Aquaculture Committee.

It said tilapia could be the next cost effective agricultural activity in the next few years, with higher exports.

“In a lake smaller than Hatillo (central) in the Dominican Republic, Honduras exports US$600 million every year, so we aspire to US$600 million in fresh water and US$600 million in salt water, to export US$1.2 billion a year, and it would be the largest and most profitable agricultural activity in the Dominican Republic, said JAD coordinator José Miguel De Peña.

In the framework of the “First Congress of Intensive Production of Tilapias,” De Peña said the country imports 25 million dollars in tilapia annually, so they seek to reduce it with local production, which he affirms is of much better quality.

Her loved ones say they are shocked from the brutal murder.

“I can’t imagine what kind of monster could do something like that to such a noble soul,” said Adrianne Machina, Anton’s cousin, quoted by Michigan Up North Live.

Machina said Anton, “loved teaching in the Dominican Republic and training teachers there, training students and really making a difference in the Cabarete area.”
