and in case you were wondering.
the incumbent president, leonel fernandez, was re-elected and will be serving another 4 year term.
there's a law that president's can't serve more than 3 consecutive terms. this is his second consecutive, but really, his third go-around. it seems to me that he didn't even want to re-run but because of the lack of other qualified campaigners, stayed around. he won with something like 56% of the vote.
i don't know what it looks like for the future of the country, but i think he probably was the best out of the candidates.
