    Varela wins Panama election, defeats Martinelli's incumbent candidate

    The next president, broke away with the ruling party and campaigned against corruption and Martinelli's iron-fist style

    Panama’s Electoral Committee declared opposition candidate Juan Carlos Varela as the winner of Sunday's election and the country's next president: he captured 39% of the vote with more than 80% of ballots counted. In Panama there is no run-off and no re-election so president Ricardo Martinelli nominated his successor and completed the ticket with his wife, Marta Linares de Martinelli.
