DR1 - President Leonel Fernandez was on the campaign trail for the PLD over the weekend. On Sunday he toured Villa Mella, Guaricanos and Sabana Perdida, three low-income mega-barrios in the Province of Santo Domingo, as reported in Listin Diario. He toured northern Santo Domingo to back the presidential candidacies of Danilo Medina and his wife, Margarita Cedeno. He was joined by his son, Omar Leonel Fernandez, and other leading PLD party members. On Monday, the main newspapers published a two-page spread from the Presidency of the Republic and the Presidency Press office highlighting new public works including the Carretera Mao-Santiago Rodriguez, the municipal hospital in Baitoa, Santiago, paving of streets in Palmarito, Monsenor Nouel, reconstruction of the Carretera Pedernales highway, the construction of the club for journalists in Barahona, inauguration of the Los Salados church in Santiago, and the remodeling of the Bella Vista barrio basketball court in Santiago.
