PAN National Assembly gives Calderón allies a majority

The 12,000 delegates of the PAN National Assembly elected 150 new members to the National Council that will elect a new party president in December and oversee the party through the 2012 elections. Calderón allies took a majority of seats, although fewer than two years ago, followed by the conservative “El Yunque” wing of the party associated with former party president Manuel Espino, and the allies of Senator Santiago Creel in third place.
