Reynolds Parade Perez, general secretary of the Dominican Liberation Party (PLD), said this Saturday that increasing the membership of the political body would become a “dysfunctional organization”.
“I do not accept that the membership of the political committee of the PLD will be increased to 45, because I do not think it will function properly,” another member of the political committee posted on his Twitter account.
I do not accept the increase in the membership of the political committee @PLDenlinea For 45, I think it would be physically inactive.
