The Transformation of Mexican Presidentialism

In the aftermath of the revolution, Mexican presidentialism was supposed to implement the reforms necessary to the advent of social justice. Yet, the established power, resting on a single and highly centralized party without any real checks and balances, has side-lined this goal. From the 1980s, it has adopted the free market as a model of development and instituted a liberal antidemocratic system. Despite the process of alternating political power introduced since 1997, a political system creating social injustice lasted until the July 2018 election of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a leader who emerged from social movements and obtained a majority in both houses of Congress. The main task of the new president will be to democratize the presidential government.
