Fernández Noroña, the biggest loser in Congress

It seems like the PT party was the biggest loser in Congress this weekend since it failed in its role as an operator. Lawmakers Reginaldo Sandoval and Gerardo Fernández Noroña tried to crush the opposition to introduce other issued during the extraordinary period in the lower chamber. They risked the period and several reforms for a few hours, to the point where Noroña had to ask Ricardo Monreal from help. The bottom of the issue is that the PT is trying to lead the lower chamber starting in September, which is plausible. In case the PT wins, the PRI would lose its chance.
