Olimpo Saenz of the MOLIRENA party also asked the Minister to disclose the names of the politicians. "They should know who they are," he said. On Thursday, Minister Mulino said citizens should be careful when voting for a candidate in 2014, because many people who are running have been linked to drug trafficking. (TVN)
Editor's Comment: If the CD guys have solid information that candidates from other political parties are receiving donations from drug traffickers, then I expect they will wait until it gets closer to the next general election in May 2014 to file those complaints. If they filed them now, then the opposition parties would have time to fill those spots with new candidates. If they wait, then they can tarnish the candidate and the party he or she represents, and there won't be enough time for a replacement to mount a successful challenge. Remember the allegations that both Bobby Velasquez and Balbina Herrera had supposedly received $3 million dollars in cash (each) from David Murcia? That came out right at the end of the campaign season and just before the election, and it helped Ricardo Martinelli to win the Presidency, and Bosco Vallarino to win as the Mayor of Panama City. These recent statements by Jose Raul Mulino just smell like a reaction to the murder of a PRD politician in San Miguelito last weekend, and he was vague because he can't be specific and get away with it.
