Articles of the Constitution to be voided after lawmakers’ vote fraud - The Constitution Revisory Assembly will void the articles approved in Thursday’s session, in which several of its members  voted fraudulent for their absent colleagues.

Assembly president Reinaldo Pared said as the result of some of his colleagues’ misconduct that voting must be annulled and pledged to propose a review of all the articles approved in the today’s session, to give it greater legitimacy. "The final part of the topic on the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch will need to be debated again, and voted on again, but for that the Assembly must approve it."

The constitutional reform which various sectors question alleging it suppresses citizens’ rights, was defended this weekend by president Leonel Fernandez and opposition PRD party president Miguel Vargas.

For Fernandez only "a minority of citizens" oppose the Assembly’s decisions and affirmed that the beaches will continue under public dominion, without affecting private property.

Vargas agrees with the chief executive and defended the agreement signed with the ruling PLD, to spur the reform’s approval.

He said there’s been “disinformation" on several aspects approved in the constitutional reform, such as the public dominion over beaches, while respecting private property.
