Fernando Lugo Trying a Comeback

Fernando Lugo, who was ousted in a shady 2012 impeachment (I discussed that here), now wants to come back to the presidency. He is currently a senator and his supporters are pushing for a constitutional amendment (through a referendum process) to allow his return. This comes after he said just last year that he did not like the idea of constitutional reforms aimed at a particular person.

Meanwhile, Lugo went to the hospital for a routine check-up and then was admitted with no explanation. He has originally planned to be an observer for Ecuador's presidential election.

The Paraguayan oligarchy has a firm grip on politics and I would have to imagine it would find ways to block this process.
