ECONOMIST: First to go on record of predicting Cortizo to oust Varela

Politics

A report from the Intelligence Unit (UI) of The Economist projects the future president of Panama to the candidate of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD), Laurentino Cortizo.

The document entitled ‘Nito Cortizo becomes the presidential candidate of the PRD’, dated in September, reveals that his past as businessman and center-left legislator gave him the necessary credibility of the middle-class and elite voters of the PRD .

In addition to reporting the results of the internal elections held on September 16, the UI considers it to be very likely to win the presidency next May.

In this sense, they observe the contest centered on three parties, but with a very weak official group in the final stretch of their term.

The report reveals that President Juan Carlos Varela has extremely low popularity ratings and that by the end of his term he will face a reduced percentage of governability in July 2019.

For this reason, he deduces the publication, the low popularity within the National Assembly and among the voters will lead him to focus more on foreign policy in the last months of his term.

As this newspaper has published, Varela carried out a questioned foreign policy that he launched through the Falcon Plan. Among other actions, it seeks to introduce the country as an observer in the Arab League, a situation that may contravene relations with its main partners and economic allies, the United States and Israel.
