An act of apparent political vengeance: PAN loses party registry in Guerrero

In the state of Guerrero, where PAN in last year's gubernatorial election the end declined for winning PRD candidate Ángel Aguirre Rivero, the state's electoral institute, Instituto Electoral del Estado de Guerrero (IEEG), has canceled PAN's party registry in the state as well as the payment of public funds to the party.

The reason? According to IEEG, is is simply because the PAN, quite likely due to declining for the PRD, only achieved 2.5 percent of the vote in the state.

PAN, however, accuse the IEEG of "political vengeance" given PAN's support of the PRD. It is not hard to see the point: While the 2.5-percent rule is certainly valid, PAN does, however, remain a national party, and the minimum-support stipulation arguably then does not apply.
