Dominican Republic President Medina’s Decision

The United States welcomes Dominican President Medina’s announcement not to seek an extension of constitutionally mandated term limits that shows trust in the will of the people and bodes well for the future of the country.  We hope future leaders of the Dominican Republic and leaders throughout the region will look to President Medina as an example of statesmanship and deference to a system of governance by and for the people.  The United States supports the Dominican people and their democratic future.
