In the Dominican Republic, tourism industry leader Luis Abinader has been elected as the new president, putting an end to the ruling Dominican Liberation Party’s 16 years in power. The election had previously been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, but was held Sunday with a high voter turnout despite the worsening outbreak in the Dominican Republic. The country is one of the worst hit in the Caribbean with over 38,000 cases and more than 800 deaths.
