Dominican Republic. According to CountryAAH, Santo Domingo is the capital city of Dominican Republic. President Leonel Fernández won the primary elections on May 6 with 72 percent of the vote, which means he can stand for re-election to the ruling party Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD) in May 2008. Fernández won many votes for having overcome the high inflation that the previous administration left behind. His opponent Danilo Medina is Fernández’s closest associate but the nomination campaign became bitter and in many respects resembled a fight between two different parties.
In April, President Fernández announced a plan to reform and modernize the armed forces. Among other things, a new national security and defense directorate will be established and, more controversially, the military will have increased influence over issues related to national development. In part, the measures came as a result of pressure from the United States, which has long complained that the military in the Caribbean and Central American countries are not equipped to meet the new global security threats from terrorism and narcotics. For the Dominican Republic, the commander of US Southern Command, Admiral James Stravidis, during a visit to the Dominican Republic, promised to help improve border control of Haiti, which is known as a transhipment station in the international drug trade.
