Unable to elect leader in Mexico City, PRI appoints Jesús Murillo Karam

Unable to carry out an election for the head of its party branch in Mexico City, national PRI president Humberto Moreira appointed Senatr Murillo Karam the "delegate" or de facto party president instead.

It appears a compromise candidate, of sorts: Murillo Karam has good relations with both Beltrones and Peña Nieto - as well as Beatriz Paredes, PRI´s likely mayoral candidate.

He is, in my opinion, at least one of the more reasonable priístas out there, especially compared with the thugs who control most of the Mexico City party branch.
