Temas:

After a long day characterized by clashes of different groups within the party, the PRD leadership voted to have internal elections in October 2016, as proposed by party President Benicio Robinson.

The proposal by Robinson received 145 votes. Another wing of the party has wanted to hold the election in May, but the proposal was rejected, having only received 137 votes.

There was a third proposal to have the election in July, but it only received three votes.

Deputy Pedro Miguel González, who supported the earlier election, said that today's vote demonstrated the weak position of the current party leadership led by Robinson.

He explained that the difference in the election was the eight votes of the National Executive Committee (CEN).

Robinson said the vote was an example of the party's commitment to democracy, and called for unity within the organization.

The party also voted to elect the same number of current delegates to vote in the election, 4,200.

It also said the party will strive to promote decentralization as a major strategy for the strengthening of local governments, which they see as a way to address the problems of poverty on the local level.
