The general secretary of the PLDassured that at the cut of this past Monday, he had “duly audited” a total of 160,000 men and women, “predominantly young people between 18 and 35 years old” interested in the PLD.
They will respect the “golden rule”
Similarly, during the meeting attended by 37 members of the 45 in total that make up the enrollment of the Political Committee, they approved of respecting the “Golden Rule“.
Charlie Mariotti assured that they will respect this rule, since they are a “coherent party, which is committed to strengthening democracy”, “contrary to the government party, the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM)”, which, according to what he pointed out, have carried out a ” hunt for mayors using the state treasury”.
“Despite all these things, our party, in accordance with its vocation and above all its commitment to Dominican democracy, will be supporting the Golden Rule and, in this sense, we instruct all our mayors, members, aldermen and aldermen to accept the call of the party”, declared the general secretary of the PLD.
The “Golden Rule”, is an agreement that establishes that the president of each chapter house of the city councils must be chosen by the party organization that has won the mayor’s office during the electoral tournament.
