Editor's Comment: Highly charged, political issue. The PRD wants to keep things the way they are - unfair and slanted in a way that helps their party. The CD wants to implement four reforms which generally move things more towards a "one man, one vote" position. The Panameñista party is split, gutless, leaderless, and sinking. I expect the National Assembly will cram through the reforms (which are generally a good idea) although the PRD will make it as painful for them as possible.
