The government alliance is falling apart and they're slinging shit all over the place. First, vice-president Varela had to step in and twist arms to prevent the Narco99 crowd of Martinelli's Cambio Democratico from inserting the possibility that Martinelli could be reelected into constitutional reforms.

Of course we're already trying to figure out how to maximize breaking that law, if it passes.
Martinelli himself, meanwhile, is in Arkansas enjoying a football game. Panama City is almost a month without regular potable water now because IDAAN can't run a water plant. The collapsed highway leading to the Centennial Bridge should never have been built on a landfill, engineers have concluded. Panama is literally falling apart at a speed only seen under Noriega.
