  • Puerto Rico: Ricardo Rosselló resigns as party president over text messages

But in a four-minute speech, streamed live on Facebook, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said that he would not seek reelection and that he would step down as president of his New Progressive Party.

His insistence on staying on as governor until 2020 is not likely to satisfy protesters, who have demanded his resignation since early last week.

The calls to oust the governor have caught the attention in the mainland US and several officials, including presidential candidate Julián Castro, have come out in support of the protesters.

Live updates as Manny Pacquiao fights Keith Thurman for WBA title
I wish I had a little bit more output to go toe to toe. "I think I'm just blessed tonight". "It was a blessing and a lesson". Both fighters started quickly with a series of good-looking exchanges, but Pacquiao changed the bout in an instant.

Thousands of Puerto Ricans protested in the capital San Juan on Friday and Saturday, after vulgar text messages between Rossello and his aides became public. A general strike and large demonstrations were planned for Monday and sources speaking to the Guardian said it was likely that the marches would still go ahead. The leaked chats reportedly revealed disparaging remarks by Rossello, including homophobic and misogynistic comments about political rivals.

The administration has been plagued by corruption scandals since Maria and has hardened the island's austerity drive amid a multibillion-dollar debt crisis.
