For John, BLUF: PAN stands for National Action Party (Partido Acción Nacional) of Mexico. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The big news is that Mexicans elected leftist Lopez Obrador as President in the largest landslide in the country's recent history. Heck, it would have been News if he has just beaten the PRI Candidate.
But the local news is also important.
The original headline is from Vice, by Mr David Noriega, 28 June 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
Seven years ago, the people of Cherán — a town of some 20,000 inhabitants in the highlands of Michoacán, one of the Mexican states worst-affected by the drug wars of the last decade — decided it was time to start over. And now, after they've kicked out all the criminals, cops, and politicians, things couldn't be going better.Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
The town had been terrorized for years by an organized crime syndicate devoted to illegally logging the surrounding forests. So after mobs drove out the criminals, they disarmed and drove out the corrupt cops who had protected them. Then they banned the politicians, along with the parties that put them in power.
