Hipolito Mejia voting

20 May 2012          14:14 ET

People in the Dominican Republic have been voting to chose a new president, in a tight race between two old political rivals.

No major incidents have been reported, despite passions runing high over issues such as crime, unemployment and the rising cost of food and fuel.

Opinion polls put the official candidate Danilo Medina, just ahead of the challenger, Hipolito Mejia.

Six-and-a-half million voters are registered to cast ballots.

Voting was delayed in some parts of the country due to heavy rain.

But the president of the Electoral Committee, Roberto Rosario, told journalists “the turnout has been high, with an active and peaceful participation from voters”.

A run-off will be held next month if no candidate manages to get at least 50% of the poll.

Four other candidates are also running, but opinion polls say they have marginal support and no realistic chance of winning.

Analysts say the vote is so close that it may be decided by the ballots cast by Dominicans in the United States.

There are more than 300,000 people registered to vote who live abroad, most of them in the New York area.

Economic growth

Dominican President Leonel Fernandez is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term.

His Dominican Liberation Party (PLD) has appointed a 60-year-old economist, Danilo Medina, to run in the election.

He is promising to boost economic growth in the Caribbean country.

Mr Medina’s opponent is also an old rival and an experienced politician, who defeated him in presidential elections in 2000.

Hipolito Mejia, 71, from the Dominican Revolutionary Party (PRD), has campaigned with the slogan “Llego Papa” (Here’s Daddy).

He has vowed to fight corruption and create jobs.

But Mr Mejia’s opponents point out that when he finished his term in office in 2004, the country was facing probably the most serious financial crisis in its history.

Relations with neighbouring Haiti – with whom the Dominican Republic shares the island or Hispaniola – are also high on the agenda, especially for its economc implications.

Many Dominicans blame poor Haitian immigrants for taking their jobs and getting involved in crime, which has doubled in the last decade.

The Dominican Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean, and the economy has been growing steadly, at about 4,5% a year.

But more than 30% of its 10 million citizens still live under the poverty line, a problem both Mr Medina and Mr Mejia have promised to address.
