PRD's national congress votes in favor of poll to decide 2012 candidate

The PRD's 13th National Congress - the party's highest organ - is currently in session, and voted late yesterday 729-78 in favor of an open poll to decide the party's 2012 presidential candidate. Surprisingly, the IDN party faction close to AMLO also agreed to the poll, representing a sharp about-face following a new command from AMLO to accept it.

(La Jornada's coverage of the vote and the congress is simply a joke: I cannot remember having seen any piece surpassing journalist Roberto Garduño's coverage in terms of confusing journalism with open editorializing, where straight reporting is pushed aside for snarky, snide, simplistic sarcasm.)
