As of 10 pm last night, there was still no white smoke from the PRD. Nevertheless, everything pointed to a confirmation of Jesús Zambrano as the new president, and Armando Ríos Piter as the new secretary general.
Despite that, Señora Dolores Padierna continued in action, struggling to insert herself into the new leadership of the party.
The odd thing is that while everyone was talking about breakups, exists from the PRD, divisions and splits, the cynical René Bejarano was already again tabbed as a perredista, despite being tossed out for being a thief.
Who allowed the shameless René Bejarano to return to the PRD? Yes, the very same that talk about fractures, about splits, about Marcelo Ebrard's staying with the party implying the party's breakup.
For now, we can confirm that Jesús Zambrano will be the new president, and very probably the new secretary general will be Armando Ríos Piter, Marcelo's man.
In other words, Marcelo is taking control of the PRD, and leaving AMLO without allies and on the outside. How about that?
