President Luis Abinader appointed, through Decree 509-21, Fidel Santana as ambassador of the Dominican Republic to Uruguay.
The provision dated 13 of this month indicates in its article 2, that the designation must be sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its knowledge and execution.
“Fidel Ernesto Santana Mejia is hereby designated extraordinary and penitentiary ambassador of the Dominican Republic in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay,” says the decree in its Article 1.
This Thursday the Senate of the Republic learned of this appointment in the agenda of the day and referred it to the Permanent Commission of Foreign Relations and International Cooperation for its study.
In October of last year, Fidel Santana announced that he was resigning from the Frente Amplio Party, where he had been a militant until he became president, to seek other horizons and to rediscover his logic of service to the community and the people.
Months later she announced her aspirations to the Ombudsman’s Office, which generated a great debate about her political militancy.
“The debate on whether one is a politician or not seems to me to be unrelated to the profile I currently hold,” he said in the interview of the special Senate commission that interviewed the candidates.
The senators did not elect Santana as Ombudsman.
