Miguel Mejía is a leftist Dominican politician.[1]

He is secretary general of the Izquierda Unida (Dominican Republic). In government he was formerly Minister without portfolio,[2] then Minister for Regional Integration.[3]

He was closely associated with Venezuela's Hugo Chávez and in the period following Chavez' death made several controversial press statements - including in one interview accusing the USA of plotting a coup, and that Hugo Chávez never forgave Hipólito Mejía for having let the Dominican Republic become, in his view, involved in attempts to destabilize the Chavez government.[4]
