PRD National Council backs electoral alliances

PRD leader Jesús Ortega beat back a challenge from dissident groups in the party that oppose any alliances with the PAN, during the PRD’s VII National Council; the vote endorsing the policy of alliances was 142-93. Ortega and the Council, however, agreed to the possibility of moving up the party’s internal election of a new president and secretary general to March 2011 instead of November, in order to have a new leadership in place for the 2011-12 election campaigns.
