Fernandez’s team

Santo Domingo.-  Former president Leonel Fernández’s campaign team at a press conference presented the alleged evidence that demonstrates the voting fraud carried out in the primaries last Sunday.

Fernandez Spokesman Radhames Jimenez, said that in at least 671 tables the results from the electronic scrutiny record were transmitted in a segmented manner, and at different times.

“That is to say, that in these tables, instead of transmitting the totality of the vote of each of the five candidates and the option of ‘none’ simultaneously, they arrived separately and at different times,” he said.

“That confirms the manipulation of the data, since the votes corresponding to all the candidates on those tables were not transmitted simultaneously.”

The sightings of the luminous spheres caused a stir among the population.

SANTO DOMINGO.- Dozens of people reported seeing a string of white spherical lights in the sky of the Dominican Republic at night, which they claimed caused great concern and stir because they had no idea what they were seeing. Some observers thought that it could be an invasion from space.

The lights sighted in the sky, a total of 60, are satellites belonging to a communication network that was created by the aerospace company SpaceX that plans to develop its new Starlink project, which is a high-speed satellite internet platform.

It has also been indicated that the constellation of satellites may be observed again at 7:00 pm on Thursday night, and on November 21 will be visible again at 5:07 in the morning.

SpaceX launched the satellites last May 24 aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida, at 09:56 local time (14: 56GMT).

The owner of the SpaceX company is Elon Musk, who intends to create a constellation of satellites that give high-speed internet to the entire planet with each launch.

As reported, the orbit of the satellites is 340 to 1,150 kilometers above the surface of planet Earth, and in a cycle of every 90 minutes, they will get closer to the surface of the planet. It has been reported that the Space X satellite array orbit is lower compared to the more than 34,000 kilometers orbits of other companies.

Operations in Boca Chica

The National Police reported that 31 alleged criminals were arrested in various operations carried out in more than 40 sectors and neighborhoods of Santo Domingo Este.

The institution said that six firearms, including a homemade M-16 rifle and seventy white weapons (non-firearms), were seized.

The area’s police commander, Colonel Franklin Grullon Collado, reported that during the operations, in addition to dismantling several drug outlets, several stolen vehicles were recovered, as well as numerous motorcycles.

He said that most of the detained subjects were being sought by the judicial authorities for having open files and warrants and that the operations extended to the municipalities of Guerra and Boca Chica.

“We are facing crime and we can say, without fear of error, that criminal actions in East Santo Domingo, have fallen by a considerable percentage,” he said.

He maintained that the instructions received from the director of the National Police, Major General Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, are being followed to the letter and added that he is satisfied with the support he receives for the increase in patrolling in the Eastern zone.

“We also have to recognize that the support we receive from the public to face crime is extremely positive,” said the police commander.

The colonel added that the other subjects involved in these cases are being refined in the various police detachments.

Here is the position of the Chinese embassy in the DR following statements by Marco Rubio

Zhang Run, ambassador of the People’s Republic of China

On November 15, the US senator, Marco Rubio, again spread rumors and made fierce and malicious attacks against China and the Dominican Republic through his Twitter.

Very few local media cited these comments again. Once again we solemnly point out that in May 2018, the People’s Republic of China and the Dominican Republic established diplomatic relations on the basis of the principle of a single China and without any prior economic conditions, which received broad support from both peoples.

Despite defamation, China’s public security and monitoring products are sold expeditiously worldwide, have undergone the most rigorous tests and their level of reliability is widely recognized. No matter how certain people in the United States use security camouflages or values ​​to cover up, they cannot hide their real intentions of obtaining economic and commercial benefits through the portrayal of China as something wicked and threatening.

We greatly appreciate that in recent days, the various sectors of Dominican society have expressed their support for relations between China and the Dominican Republic and their dissatisfaction with certain comments from the US side.

China is a lover of peace and seeks common development. China-Latin America cooperation is an independent and voluntary act of both parties. China has no geopolitical consideration in this region and is willing to explore tripartite or multipartite cooperation on the basis of respecting the will of the countries of the region and jointly create a large stake of interest to achieve shared profits. China is committed to maintaining healthy, stable and sustainable relations with the Dominican Republic. We do not interfere in the internal affairs of the country, nor do we want anyone to try to get involved in internal affairs.

We hope that all sectors of Dominican society and the media can recognize the essence of people like Marco Rubio and jointly protect the diplomatic relations achieved easily between China and the Dominican Republic, which corresponds to the fundamental interests of both peoples.
