Mexican elections have been celebrated in a natural mood, mood which now has been transformed into a storm, a storm that various sectors of civil society expected.
But there are still issues to face after the election, like if the Institutional Revolutionary Party back to the old totalitarian adventures? if Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will call for civil resistance after failing to recognize the triumph of the PRI candidate? and what will do the National Action Party?.
The first question is undoubtedly the easiest to answer thanks that legislative control will be substantial. The Democratic Revolutionary Party gotten in alliance with the PT and the Citizens Movement 140 federal deputies while the National Action Party gets 118. The PRI (with 232 deputies) will try to convince the 268 deputies (10 deputies joined the other coalitions ) to make any kind of structural reforms. This is very important as both Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon had a similar opposition during their terms, which hampered the implementation of reforms and that consensus had not been produced.
This must be added that 8 states and the Federal District are controlled by the Democratic Revolutionary Party and 3 under the National Action Party.
The second question (if AMLO will call for resistance) is still in the air and leaves a feeling especially outside of uncertainty. This uncertainty is increased if we consider that AMLO had signed on Civility Pact which gave full trust to the Federal Electoral Institute.
#Yosoy132 already launched various strikes and since they know the results have spoken and called the rest of society does not recognize Peña as legitimate president. Now AMLO position is to wait until September to make a roadmap. Considering that in the D.F. the PRD is the engine of the left, the capital will suffer AMLO call to make a responsible opposition or to maker second staging of the “Legitimate President of AMLO.”
The campaign both as Andrés Manuel Peña were extraordinary, especially since the achievement of the second, cutting 20-point lead, but it was not enough. Seven points (3,192,281 votes) make the difference between the platform “Coalition for Mexico” and “Progressive Movement” and now have to wait if both fail to exorcise its past, its first 70 years of party hegemony and the second its constant confrontation with the institutions election.
The third is a question mark a before and after the Mexican right. The candidacy of Josefina Vazquez Mota crashed completely in the soil and that I can not be in the last section a competitive bid. The National Action Party said that the errors, both in the Fox presidency as the Calderon administration did not achieve substantial political reform for the nation has been the trigger.
The staff under the leadership of Felipe Calderon (current President), Josefina Vazquez Mota (presidential candidate 2012), Ernesto Cordero (Senator and presidential candidate 2012) and the “Jefe” Diego (presidential candidate 1994) closed ranks against Fox. Take into account the need to restructure the party and the ex president will serve as a sacrifice so that, through the efforts of the 3 States that remains strong and the PAN members in Congress, the PAN could make the traditional opposition to the PRI .
While these three parties discussed the necessary actions to make their way to power all that is certain is that the only presidential candidate who has uncorked the champagne and celebrated is Quadri who has maintain the registry.
