Partido Revolucionario Democrático (PRD) Legislator Raul Pineda said today that the electoral reforms being proposed by the Cambio Democrático (CD) are aimed at helping the Molirena party.
He said that changes to the way legislators are elected are aimed at boosting the chances of the country's fourth-largest party, which is aligned with the CD.
As an example, he used San Miguelito, which has seven seast in the Assembly. Pineda said the changes being contemplated will allow the smaller parties to win one of the seats, especially if it is allied with the CD.
