PAN-PRD alliances move forward

PRD Secretary General Hortensia Aragón confirmed that the party’s National Political Commission planned to endorse electoral alliances with the PAN in Durango, Hidalgo, Oaxaca, and possibly Puebla in this July’s state elections. She noted that the PRD did not have any real candidates of its own in these states. Her view was backed, importantly, by Alejandro Encinas, AMLO’s representative in the PRD leadership. Encinas (the head of the PRD delegation in the Chamber) denied that the alliances were like “mixing oil and water,” since no formal ideological commitments were being made. The most prominent likely joint gubernatorial candidates are Gabino Cué in Oaxaca and Xóchitl Gálvez in Hidalgo. (Universal 1/22)
