Unable to hold election, PRI appoints party head in Mexico City

Given that its attempt at an internal election was deemed invalid by the Federal district electoral court, the PRI announced it would appoint a delegate to head the Mexico City branch of the party, without a president for years, and dominated by Cuauhtémoc Gutiérrez de la Torre, the "King of Garbage" in Mexico City.

This could endanger PRI´s ability to present its own candidate for Mexico City mayor, though the Green Party, PRI's electoral allies, has already offered their registry to Beatriz Paredes Rangel, should she decide to run, though one can rest assure they will demand plenty in return.

It is up to Mexico City voters whether they will actually will vote for a candidate whose party is not even capable of holding a democratic election for the head of its own party branch.
