Ebrard strikes back against AMLO: Armando Ríos Piter new parliamentary leader

After receiving a heavy pummeling by AMLO, who forced Ebrard to drop his support for a PRD-PAN alliance in Mexico State, Ebrard struck back: Armando Ríos Piter will replace Alejandro Encinas as the head of PRD's parliamentary group in the Chamber of Deputies. Ilich Augusto Lozano will be the vice coordinator.

The former is very close to Ebrard; the latter is a member of the social-democratic Nueva Izquierda faction opposed to AMLO.
