FEDODIM Director: “Parties get millions but fail to provide leader training”

Santo Domingo, RD – Of the two thousand 400 million that political parties received for the current 2024 electoral process, they do not invest the required ten percent minimum for the training of their leaders, denounced the director of the Dominican Federation of Municipal Districts, Pedro Richardson, who called the mayors, directors and members of each district to defend their right to receive political training.

Richardson recalled that before political organizations trained and evoked the late professor Juan Bosch, who personally built a training school for the Dominican Liberation Party; and “their regulations had to be rigorously complied with”, I also quote, the Social Christian Reformist Party, Nicolas Almánzar, his training and education institute.

“These efforts were made by the political parties, but not today, said the president of FEDODIM, to point out that the organizations currently receive a state transfer for the 2023-2024 electoral process that for this year amounts to RD$2.4 billion pesos, of which the parties were only supposed to invest 10% in political training, that is, RD$238 million “and they don’t do it.”

“Yesterday there was no regulation, a legal requirement and they had financing, today they have it, which is why I draw attention, Fedodim, people meet, organize to defend their rights, the mayors, councilors, members, directors, which is its main priority is to win the elections, that is what worries it most, and in every scenario, the union has to offer its associates the tools they require.”
