Lopez said "the sector of agriculture has been abandoned by the traditional parties ... let's focus on lowering food prices so it can reach the people, to eliminate the food insecurity that exists at the moment."
Lopez said democracy and human rights must be respected, and that he would repeal Law 74 if elected.
"I will provide special protection to agriculture, democracy and respect the human rights, and we will repeal Law 74," Lopez said. (Telemetro)
Editor's Comment: Lopez and the FAD party represent the extreme left of the Panamanian political spectrum. At this moment in time they have zero chance of actually winning the May 2014 election. Every vote they attract will be one less for the PRD, which currently gets most of the extreme left commie whack-job vote at the moment. So with the emergence of this FAD party, the PRD weakens by an amount roughly equal to whatever support the FAD generates for themselves. In doing the political math this is a good thing for Jose Domingo Arias, Ricardo Martinelli and the CD. They are generally center-right businessmen so they will lose practically no votes to the FAD.
