PRD offers to have all its candidates certified as free of narco-connections

Jesús Zambrano and Dolores Padierna, the PRD's (Partido de la Revolución Democrática) president and secretary general respectively, handed over a list to the Mexican Federal attorney general's office  of all their candidates for the upcoming state elections, in Coahuila, Nayarit, Mexico State and Hidalgo, asking that the PGR certify then as having no connections to any drug trafficking gangs.

The PGR responded it is beyond its powers and rejected the petition - but quite likely a useful publicity stunt, nonetheless.
