Many of the candidates for the Alcalde and Vice Alcalde positions uner ther "Alianza Liberal Nicaragüense" (ALN) party have begun to drop their candidatures and back the PLC candidates and Vamos Con Eduardo movement.

The first to leave the ranks of the ALN was the Esquipulas of Matagalpa Alcalde. They are saying that this week there will be MANY abandonding the ALN to support the PLC, this is a battle to fight Sandinismo (or Neo-Somocismo).

Tomorrow there will be a press conference that will really begin this process.
