This week, Electoral Prosecutor Eduardo Peñaloza filed two complaints before the Electoral Court to investigate alleged irregularities involving Housing Minister Mario Etchelecu and presidential candidate for the PRD Laurentino "Nito" Cortizo.

"Once we confront the rules, we duly submit it to the Electoral Court, in a complaint, so that they are responsible for investigating and making the final decision whether it represents an offense or not. We submitted it (the complaint) for violation of the election silence," Peñaloza told TVN.

The Panameñista party and the Democratic Revolutionary Party rejected the accusations against Etchelecu and against Cortizo, respectively.
