PDP, PIP, CVM slam governor for enacting Electoral Reform
By John McPhaul
Popular Democratic Party (PDP) President Aníbal José Torres launched an attack on Saturday against Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced for turning the new Electoral Code legislation into law.
“Governor Wanda Vázquez once again says one thing and does another. She betrayed the country and showed which side of history she decided to be on. The governor did not keep her word. It was she who publicly stated that she would not sign a bill that lacked the endorsement of all interested groups,” Torres said in a written statement. “It was she who failed not only on her word, but also failed the country by turning the Electoral Code into law, which comes to fulfill two main purposes: to perpetuate the New Progressive Party in the administration of the State Elections Commission (SEC) with absolute control of the electoral process and disrupt democratic coexistence.”
