The parties of the Dominican Liberation (PLD) and Liberal Reformista (PLR), of Senator Amable Aristy Castro, formalized this Friday the breaking of the alliance signed between them on February 25, 2020.
The PLD published on its Twitter account the resignation act in which it was established that both political parties would attend allies in the presidential and congressional elections of July 5 , with common representation at the presidential and senatorial level.
According to what is read in the document, both parties renounce the nomination of common candidates and leave without effect all common representation in the electoral boards and colleges. Now, each party must nominate its own private candidates for the different levels, as well as appoint representatives and delegates before the electoral boards and colleges.
Likewise, they authorize the Central Electoral Board (JCE) to take the necessary measures to readjust the electoral ballots at the presidential and senatorial levels, so that they reflect the act of termination of the alliance.

In a letter sent to the PLD, in which he requested the termination of the agreement, Aristy Castro, senator of La Altagracia, indicated that he did so after “deep intimate reflection and broad consultation with the unanimity of our leadership cadres and, for above all, it constitutes the worthy reaction to an unnecessary and undeserved injury ”
