The Myanmar Times - - World -

Pres­i­dent Daniel Ortega put his wife, Rosario Murillo, down as his fu­ture vice pres­i­dent on a joint ticket for his re-elec­tion in a Novembe 6 polls. The un­usual step ce­mented Ms Murillo’s po­lit­i­cal as­cent. Cur­rently, the first lady is a gov­ern­ment min­is­ter and the main spokesper­son for Mr Ortega’s ad­min­is­tra­tion. Mr Ortega and Ms Murillo of­fi­cially sub­mit­ted their can­di­dacy to the coun­try’s elec­toral tri­bunal on Aug 2.
