Another major political party in Panama, the National Liberal Republican Movement (Molirena) came out in support of the proposal to expand the Panama Canal over the weekend. Panamanians will go to the polls on 22 October 2006 to either approve or reject the plan. All of the political parties with large followings have voiced their support for the plan, and only fringe elements and small groups of radicals and antagonists are opposing the plan. This is just one more announcement from a smaller but still siginificant political party is yet another indication of the margin of support for the referendum, which by all appearances will pass by a landslide.
