Only female candidate in P. Rico's elections is a victim of discredit
16 de octubre de 2020, 18:41San Juan, Oct 16 (Prensa Latina) Lawyer Alexandra Lugaro, the only female candidate for the government of Puerto Rico, charged on Friday that she is a victim of a smear operation by a group linked to the opposition Popular Democratic Party (PPD).
Vangie Portela, the campaign director of Lugaro, who is running for the Citizens' Victory Movement (MVC), an organization that is debuting in the general elections on November 3, noted that the coordination of the attacks comes from Dialogue for Puerto Rico, a group that involves several renowned figures from the PPD.
'Instead of trying to convince voters on the basis of proposals, this strategic group of the Popular Democratic Party encourages its members to resort to the lowest and most vulgar methods by inviting them to seek, reveal and even make up controversies on Lugaro's personal matters, thus contributing to divert the attention from major issues, from what is at stake in these elections,' Portela noted.
