PAN and PRD agree to state alliances to face PRI

The PAN and PRD agreed in principle to form electoral alliances in at least three states in the 2010 state elections: Sinaloa, Oaxaca, and Puebla. Twelve states elect governors this year, and another three have congressional or municipal elections. According to the deputy Secretary General of the PAN, Alfredo Rivadeneyra, the PRI’s dominance in these states meant, “There is an absence of alternation in power, which translates into a lack of democracy, transparency, and respect between the different branches of government.” Commentators think that there are several more states where the two will field joint candidates to face the PRI juggernaut.
