Officials admit ethics vacuum demoralizes Dominican society  - The Government’s Ethics Commission president today affirmed that Dominican society is currently demoralized and loses values which increasingly weakens it, and asked adherence to the conduct of Ulises Francisco Espaillat, who in 1857 led a rebellion against the reigning administrative chaos and government corruption.

Marino Vinicio Castillo (Vincho) ma), speaking during the ceremony to mark the National Citizen Ethics Day, praised Espaillat’s qualities and virtues, as one of the leaders of a movement which exploded in Santiago against administrative disorder and corruption rampant in July, 1857.

In the activity which is part of Ethics Week, State Reform Council (CONARE) director Marcos Villamán said a policy with an ethics component is needed which stimulates the preservation of communal property and helps maintain civility between citizens.

In the conference “Impact of Ethics in the Dominican State Context” organized by the Commission, Villamán said ethics is part of a State which modernizes, reforms and contributes to a more democratic society, spurs social interchange and greater government transparency. “Ethics has always sparked interest in its relation with public activities generally and politics in particular. This is so given politics’ centralizing nature in the life of societies.”
