The National Council of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) unanimously approved to replace its national leaders, led by Carlos Navarrete Ruiz, in the third week of September, as well as the state directors of the constituencies in which the party got bad results in the last elections.

The 338 counselors who participated in the Fifth Extraordinary Plenum of the Ninth National Council of the PRD voted in favor of removing Navarrete as well as Secretary General Héctor Bautista and the 20 members of the National Executive Committee.

The National Council also approved the creation of a commission to seek alliances and engage in dialogue with progressive and leftist forces and leaders such as Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, both of them former members of the PRD.

Navarrete said he would not leave the party after his removal.

In the last election, that took place on June 7, the PRD obtained less than 6% of the votes in Aguascalientes, Baja California, Campeche, Coahuila, Chiapas, Chihuahua, Durango, Jalisco, Nuevo León , Puebla, Queretaro, Sinaloa, Sonora and Tamaulipas.
