National Assembly Elections

Recommended Posts

The National Assembly held new elections which turned into a debacle.  A coalition of Panameñistas and CD assembly members who have abandoned their former leader Martinelli finally joined forces to elect a new President of the Assembly, defeating the PRD candidate from Chiriqui. No one political party has the 36 seats required to carry a win on their own.

Some PRD members also broke with their party in the vote which upset our local Diputada Athenas Athanasidasias to the point where she's drawn major notice and criticism.
