Next Dominican government to manage crisis, says Abinader
Santo Domingo, Jul 30 (Prensa Latina) Dominican Republic's President-elect Luis Abinader said today that his government will manage a crisis starting August 16, but with clear priorities.
Interviewed by El Dia newspaper, the next president said that he has clear priorities and this is what he is transmitting to his collaborators: to attend to the health crisis through Covid-19, to recover the economy and maintain macroeconomic stability, to achieve an independent justice system and to implement reforms to adapt public administration.
He also referred to corruption and impunity, about which he said there can be no fresh start and 'we will have a Public Ministry which will act even if it is the President who commits an improper act, but we will not come with a vendetta, nor seek retaliation.'
He also referred to the next school year, something that worries many, and noted that they also have an educational plan, which will be announced soon.
Parents, he said, are very concerned about their children attending classes in person, but we cannot allow a sector of the population with greater resources to have access to technology for education in a virtual or semipresential way and poor children cannot have the same conditions.
With respect to the issue of Covid-19, he said that his government will increase the capacity to carry out tests, especially CPR, the hospital capacity especially the intensive care units (ICU) and the beds available in Gran Santo Domingo and the city of Santiago, which is where the greatest concentration of positive cases is taking place.
