SANTO DOMINGO.- The president of the National Progressive Force (FNP), Marino Vinicio Castillo (Vincho), accused this Thursday the Dominican Liberation Party (PLD) of showing signs that it is articulating a plan aimed at destabilizing national peace.
During a meeting with press members, Castillo realized that the actions he described as ominous could occur from the highest levels of the purple party.
“I warn of ominous signs that suggest that a dangerous plan to disrupt and destabilize national peace is being developed, promoted by cadres from the high leadership of the Dominican Liberation Party,” said Vincho.
He pointed out that given the situation the country is experiencing, actions that threaten peace and lead to ungovernability cannot be allowed.
