DR: Becoming President One Domino at a Time

Some people attend public events and knock on doors to campaign for political office. Others hit the streets in blaring vans.

In the Dominican Republic, Hipólito Mejía turned to dominoes.

The country’s favorite pastime was held in Mejia’s honor – and may even hit the record books.

Mejía, a former president who is running again as an opposition candidate, decided to bring together thousands of people to play dominoes. About 3,300 people played on 832 tables, and even Guinness World Record was invited to see if the event could make it into the record books.

The dominoes world record is currently held by Mexico, which brought together 1,300 players last August.
