[Original in Spanish] President Luis Abinader said he will not carry out a constitutional reform that is not based on the consensus of the entire National Assembly and that he will not "conquer senators or deputies " as was done in the past by "incorrect" means.
Abinader pointed out that he is aware that many sectors are afraid that other measures may be implemented, but he guaranteed that no clause of the Constitution that has to do with the presidential election is under discussion.
