By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Both Balbina Herrera and Juan Carlos Navarro planned to hold rallies to celebrate the end of their primary campaigns in Panama City this afternoon at 5:00 pm, but it looks like these late afternoon showers are going to dampen the turnout a little. The election will be held this weekend on Sunday, 7 September, and the winner will very likely be the next president of Panama. This is a very important election. Of course, all attention is focused on the two primary presidential contenders, but don't forget there are literally thousands of candidates on the ballots all around the country, for everything from local municipal representatives, assemblymen for the National Assembly, mayors, dog catchers, you name it. Those who win in the primary will go on to face their opposition from other parties in the general national election in May 2009.
