Electoral Tribunal accepts expulsion of Manuel Espino

Mexico's electoral tribunal, TEPJF, voted 4-2 to confirm PAN's expulsion of Manuel Espino from the party. As far as I can see, this is in practice puts an end to this drawn-out process, where Espino - still popular among the most conservative sectors in the party, where he has a certain mass following - has fought tooth and nail against PAN's decision to kick him out of the party for disloyalty to its candidates in the 2010 elections.

Espino has also long expressed his interest in a presidential candidacy, and has his own "movement," Volver a Empezar.
