The Dominican Government has approved $3.9-million dollars to be used for constituency projects across the island. While speaking on a local radio station, Youth, Sports & Constituency Empowerment Minister Justina Charles said, the funds will be coming from the island’s Citizenship by Investment Program.
Charles also gave the assurance, that every constituency will receive assistance, especially those led by the opposition United Workers Party (UWP). “The Minister of Finance just approved $3.9-million for us,” Charles said “The $3.9-million is going to be distributed across the island to assist with constituency projects. No constituency is left out, including the six of the opposition party. All of them will be benefiting this time with $300,000, to assist with projects within their constituency.”
Charles is of the view, when this is done; the Government will have empower persons living in these constituencies as well as their village councils.
