Twenty-seven political parties are registered for this year's elections, although only a handful of them are really capable of winning a significant number of seats.
A few tidbits -
The Frente Amplio has confirmed that it will support Rigoberta Menchu.
Municipal and transit police will not be allowed to vote.
The Patriotic Party submitted its binomial to the TSE ten minutes after midnight this morning. Needless to say, they were the first party to do so. The PAN was a little slow as they did not show up until 7:00 A.M.
Finally, you can read about relative unknown Roberto Díaz Durán Quezada here. Díaz Durá is Torres' running mate for UNE. He's a gator, so it will be tough for me to support him.
