This is a "breaking news" headline at this point and I'm still waiting for the details.
The fact that the Electoral Tribunal decided in favor of the request made by the Panameņista party and against the Cambio Democratico and Molirena parties is really no surprise at all. The court is "owned and operated" by the PRD and they have lost any sense of being a neutral or fair arbiter a long time ago. And now that the PRD and Panameņista parties have become allies against Martinelli, of course the Electoral Tribunal decided in Varela's favor (as I predicted this morning).
Anyway, now I suspect the CD will appeal to the Supreme Court, who will decide in their favor, and then the Electoral Tribunal will ignore that decision. They've already done exactly that once, who why not a few more times?
