President Luis Abinader said tonight that he will submit a bill to the National Congress to reduce 50% of the budget that is given to political organizations.
In that sense, he explained that next year is not electoral and the parties can wait, but the Dominicans cannot.
“With the money we save with this measure, I will propose to start the UASD project in Santo Domingo Este,” says the president in a brief speech addressed to the nation on the occasion of his first 60 days in office today.
He said that the time has come to implement a policy that is exemplary and with ethical content and that the Government will be the first to set an example and show its commitment and solidarity with the situation the country is going through in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The road is long, but we will manage to reach the goal together, without leaving anyone behind and with the firm conviction of having had an ethical and exemplary behavior,” he emphasized.
He explained that the sacrifices that the Dominican people are making have to be accompanied by those of their public representatives, understanding that this is the best way to serve the country.
This is the second time that Abinader has addressed the nation so far this October.
