PRI leadership lashes out at alliances as ‘poison’

PRI party president Beatriz Paredes lashed out at the prospect of PAN-PRD alliances at a gathering of the PRI’s congressional delegation. She said: “To divide, confront, poison the atmosphere in the country, and to deteriorate the relationship with the majority party is not an intelligent formula; it’s not a formula at all, it’s folly. The majority leader in the Chamber, Francisco Rojas, called the alliances “a grotesque and surreal spectacle.” Columnist Salvador García Soto said the PRI is trying to send an unmistakable message: “If the PAN allies itself with the PRD in the states, tell the President he can forget about his reforms; let him see what he can get done working the perredistas.” (Universal 1/23, 1/23)
