Dominicans will cast ballots while keeping an eye on the situation in neighboring Haiti

  • The general elections that the Dominican Republic is scheduled to hold are expected to further solidify the government’s crackdown.
  • the Dominican Republic’s border with its neighbor experiencing a crisis, however, has contributed significantly to his popularity.
  • The government deported 175,000 Haitians in large numbers last year.

The general elections that the Dominican Republic is scheduled to hold are expected to further solidify the government’s crackdown on the hundreds of thousands of migrants who are trying to escape the violent country of Haiti.

There is no need for a second round of voting as President Luis Abinader is leading the presidential contest with a 50% vote margin. Among the 8 million voters in the Caribbean Island, his anti-corruption agenda and efforts to expand the economy have found favor.

General elections

The government‘s severe crackdown on Haitians and the Dominican Republic’s border with its neighbor experiencing a crisis, however, has contributed significantly to his popularity.

The Dominican Republic has traditionally had a strict policy toward Haitian migrants, but since President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated in 2021, Haiti went into free fall, and these measures have been more aggressive.

Along its 250-mile border, the Dominican Republic’s government has constructed a wall like to that of President Trump, and it has consistently pushed the UN to dispatch a multinational force to Haiti. The government deported 175,000 Haitians in large numbers last year and has rebuffed requests to construct camps for refugees escaping the conflict.
