The coming PRD split: Now IDN threatens to leave the party

IDN, the most discredited and corrupt of PRD's internal factions, is threatening to leave the party unless the party's internal state elections in Mexico State are annulled.

While obviously very damaging to the party in the short run - the IDN is among the largest of PRD's myriad of internal factions - I am increasingly moving to the conviction that given the discredit IDN has brought over the PRD (it is led by "Rubber band man" René Bejarano and his wife Dolores Padierna), it may be a price worth paying for the PRD if it wants to establish itself as a modern, socially liberal, left-wing party.
