The PAN central committee (CEN) agreed to convene the party’s National Council on August 8th to elect a new “interim” party president to succeed Germán Martínez, who resigned in the wake of the July 5 elections. Candidates will need to register by July 24. Most observers think the favorite for the post is César Nava, the President’s former private secretary, who was just elected to the new Chamber of Deputies. (Universal 7/14)
