The Mexican Electoral Map: Evolution from PRI Dominance to Morena’s Rise

CNN Spanish reports that in just a decade, Mexico’s electoral map has shifted dramatically from the hegemony of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to the dominance of Morena, the party founded by current president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

In six years, Morena has positioned itself as the first political force in the country. The party secured the presidency and parliamentary majority in Congress in 2018 and currently governs 21 of Mexico’s 32 states.

The PRI, which was founded in 1946, held a stronghold on the political map for decades until 1989 when the conservative National Action Party (PAN) secured its first opposition state government. The PAN gradually gained more states over the years, signaling a shift in Mexican politics.

The rise of Morena as a political force came in 2014 when it was established as a party. In the following years, the party made significant gains in local and federal elections, culminating in the victory of Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the 2018 presidential election.

In the most recent gubernatorial elections, Morena emerged victorious in states like Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Tamaulipas, and Quintana Roo, further solidifying its presence in Mexican politics. Currently, Morena governs 21 states in the country, while the opposition parties hold a smaller share of state governments.

The political landscape in Mexico continues to shift, with Morena’s rise signaling a new era in Mexican politics.
