He argued that “the facts show that in just nine months the government of Louis Abenader and our Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM) have made many achievements to showcase and showcase for the benefit of the national sport, in the midst of the epidemic caused by the coronavirus. And with far fewer resources than those managed by the PLD administrations”
He stressed that “it was President Abenader who saved the Dominican’s main pastime, baseball, by celebrating the 2020-21 Autumn-Winter Pro Championship”, amid the outbreak of the pandemic.
He asserted that the previous PLD government left the Puerto Plata Sports Center in a state of complete abandonment, “completely devastated”, causing the Huracans de Atlantico franchise to leave the National Basketball Association (LNB) for several years. This facility as a place to play; Same with that city’s top tournament.
The official said, “President Abenader and the Ministry of Sports are the ones who ordered the complete renovation and renovation of the Puerto Plata Sports Center, and restored the joy and splendor of sports in that province,” noting that the president himself led the inauguration of the Puerto Plata Sports Center.

With this arrangement, Camacho added: “We were surprised that the PLD called a press conference to demand a solution to the bike path and they didn’t, for example, cheer for a Dominican baseball team that had a great performance at the Americas Olympics that took place in Florida, USA recently.
“We haven’t seen that organization congratulate the Dominican athletes who have already qualified for the Olympics,” Camacho said, and said the PLD wanted to absolutely politicize a sports issue, for which the Sports Ministry had a workable, harmonious solution.
“It is unfortunate that the party that has just emerged from power is appealing to such dubious maneuvers to disrupt the administration of the new government that has been focused from day one on saving sports across the country.
“The national priority is to confront Covid-19 and we have turned the Olympic Center into one of the main vaccination centers for the general population, and before that we have vaccinated all the athletes,” the minister said.

“His statements are full of lies and distortions and are out of context,” Camacho added in response to the PLD Sports Committee’s statements.
“Proof of this is a video clip circulating on the networks about an unfortunate incident involving ex-basketball player Manuel Fortuna, or an event not related to the Ministry of Sports, or to the pricocross track, or also an event that did not take place at the Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center. This situation happened. In the Villa Joanna sector. Another example of PLD attempts to distort the truth, but in doing so they only made it visible,” he said.
