PARAGUAY'S MAN OF GOD AND POLITICS - A FORMER BISHOP THREATENS TO END OF THE RULING PARTY'S LONG REIGN.

Gabriela Perdomo - "From today on, my cathedral will be the nation", declared Fernando Lugo last December as he announced he was determined to seek Paraguay's presidency upon leaving behind his life serving the Catholic Church.

More from the article: Lugo is a novelty for many reasons. The right-wing ANR—or Colorados—have been involved in Paraguay's national administration since the mid-20th century, even during the dictatorship of Alfredo Stroessner. The ANR is actually the longest-serving governing party in the world, even ahead North Korea's Kim dynasty.
