ROBIN BERNSTEIN – Ambassador Says Danilo And Ray Guevara Asked The US To Be "oversight Body" In Elections

Sosua, Puerto Plata, RD.

The US ambassador, Robin Bernstein, said she met this week with President Danilo Medina and president of the Constitutional Court, Milton Ray Guevara, who asked that the United States be a supervisory body in the upcoming elections.

The ambassador said her country was happy to help with whatever is necessary.


"Both of us have been asked to be an election monitoring body because they want elections that are free and we are happy to support applications," Bernstein said.

Bernstein spoke with the journalists at the conclusion of the act in which he gave a donation from the Ambassadors Fund of the State Department for the Jewish Museum of Sosua.

The diplomat said that the United States supports democracy and that sometimes it turns out to be painful.

I value the democratic vocation of the Dominican people who have already lived in dictatorship and know what it is to live in democracy.

"A country with a strong democracy and economic prosperity is as important to Dominicans as it is to the United States that will continue to support democracy throughout the world," he said.
