The Council of the Socialist International, meeting in Maputo, Mozambique, on 10-11 November 2000, congratulates the Dominican Revolutionary Party (PRD) and President Hipólito Mejía, for the splendid victory in the first round of elections last 16 May, vindicating the struggle for freedom, democracy and social justice of the Dominican people and of José Francisco Peña Gómez.

The Council salutes the victory of our member party, the PRD, and President Hipólito Mejía, wishing them success in the difficult task ahead of the new government with the fiscal situation it has inherited, the servicing of the debt and the cost of petrol.
