Two weeks after the legislative elections, the PRD still has not defined who will integrate the 15 working committees.
Yesterday, the six dissident PRD members skipped a meeting with caucus leaders, who have sought to place them on committees they do not want to be on.
For example, they assigned Leandro Avila to the Transportation Commission, Elías Castillo and Rubén De León to the Women, Children and Family Commission, Quibian Panay to the Education, Culture and Sports Committee and Pedro Miguel González to the Social Development Committee.
Caucus head Benicio Robinson was assigned to the Budget Commission, Raúl Pineda would be on the Commission of Government and Constitutional Affairs, and Zulay Rodríguez will be on the Credentials and Government committees.
The caucus voted on the appointments July 7, but the dissident members did not attend.
If there is no consensus on the formation of the commissions, they will be decided by a vote in the plenary where the dissidents have formed a majority with other parties.
González intends to preside over the Government Committee, which will be chaired by a PRD deputy.
The Panameñista and CD parties have already reached a consensus on the leadership of the committees they will chair.
