The leader of the Dominican Revolutionary Party (PRD) Alberto Despradel (Chico) is expected to be appointed today as the new Dominican ambassador in Haiti.
Chico Despradel has previously served as Dominican Ambassador to Haiti during the government of the ex- president Hipólito Mejía and is considered like a man of confidence of the current chancellor Miguel Vargas Maldonado.
A source revealed that Despradel would be appointed by President Danilo Medina.
Despradel who is said to be very knowledgeabe of Haiti was a very loud critic of the Plan of Regularization designed by Medina.
Despradel would replace Dr. Rubén Silié in the post, named last 10th of this month at the Dominican Embassy in Chile.
