Bishop calls on Dominican political parties to nominate candidates with ‘clean’ criminal history

.- Bishop Jesus Maria de Jesus Moya of San Francisco de Macoris called on political parties in the Dominican Republic to nominate candidates with a clean criminal record so citizens can cast their vote without worry.

"Parties have the serious obligation not to nominate candidates who are involved in drugs, crime, corruption or theft, because politics is supposed to be about promoting the common good," the bishop said.

He stressed that Dominican voters need to choose from candidates with a clean record in order "to cast their vote in peace and tranquility."

Bishop Jesus Moya also called for the strengthening of the family and the teaching of values as a means of combating the lack of safety in the country.
