More blackouts and more corruption in the Dominican Republic

Representatives of industries demanded that president Leonel Fernandez fire the executive vice-president of State-owned power companies grouped in the CDEEE Radhamés Segura and the other electrical cabinet officials, affirming that they’ve totally failed to solve the power service’s problems.


Herrera Industries Association (AEIH) president Manuel Cabrera, that organization’s council of past presidents, and the president of the Federation of Industrial Associations (FAI) said, “enough is enough of politicking, cronyism and profiting which block a way towards an industry that’s stable, efficient and with an electrical service at competitive prices.”


Cabrera and the business leaders Ernesto Vilalta and Ignacio Méndez signed the statements by the ex president of the National Business Council (Conep) Celso Marranzini, who said the CDEEE must be reviewed from top to bottom after last week’s corruption scandal in the Blackouts Reduction Program (PRA).


Noting that in December’s Government-sponsored dialogue, the electrical sector was the only work table which contributed something, they called on business leaders in general to "rise and proclaim; enough is enough for stories in the CDEEE’s electrical management," who has adopted functions not established in the law to invent solutions that end up in nothing.”
