How Enrique Peña Nieto Won Himself and His Party the Mexican Presidency

Mexico's President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto took up the centrist mantle of his Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) — which once stood for little more than amassing power (and keeping it for over seven decades) — and outflanked rival liberals and conservatives

Enrique Pena Nieto, presidential candidate for the Revolutionary Institutional Party, greets supporters at his party's headquarters in Mexico City, early Monday, July 2, 2012.

Shortly before he was assassinated in 1994, Mexican presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio admitted he had a dilemma. The long dictatorial reign of Colosio’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which had ruled Mexico since 1929, was under threat from two increasingly potent opposition groups: the conservative National Action Party (PAN) and the leftist Democratic Revolution Party (PRD). While the PAN and PRD represented genuine political philosophies, the PRI stood for little more than amassing power — and holding onto it in the most corrupt manner possible. Colosio knew the PRI had to bring something more meaningful than fraud to the ballot box.

So Colosio took a cue from Bill Clinton, a Democrat who had recently won the U.S. presidency with a centrist approach. “That’s where the PRI is going to position itself,” Colosio told me in an interview then, “as the socially progressive but more economically responsible alternative.” Colosio never got a chance to break in that platform: most Mexicans believe that PRI hard-liners, fearful that Colosio also planned to make Mexico more democratic, had him murdered in March 1994. His replacement, Ernesto Zedillo, won the election, but the PAN finally toppled the PRI in the 2000 presidential race.

(PHOTOS: Mexico’s PRI and Enrique Peña Nieto Eye a Return to Power)

The PRI recaptured Mexico’s presidency last night, July 1 — and its candidate, Enrique Peña Nieto, may have shown the country’s conservatives and liberals that Colosio’s vision wasn’t that far off. Peña hardly won a mandate: he won just 38% of the vote and his margin of victory was half the double-digit spread most polls had predicted. The PRD’s Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who narrowly lost the 2006 contest to current President Felipe Calderón of the PAN, took second with 32%, while the PAN’s Josefina Vázquez Mota barely topped 25% at a distant third. (Mexican Presidents are constitutionally limited to one six-year term.)

But Peña’s victory, just six years after the last PRI candidate got only 22% in the 2006 race, makes it clear that there is room after all in Mexico’s presidential politics for a third, centrist alternative. Peña, 45, a lawyer and former governor of powerful Mexico state, adjoining Mexico City, hails from a prominent old PRI family. But he cast himself as the more democratic “new face” of the party, even in his victory speech last night. “Mexicans have given our party a new chance,” Peña said before insisting that his is not the nefarious dinosaur PRI of the 20th century: “I am,” he declared, “the PRI that’s coming.”

Many Mexicans feel that when Peña ran Mexico state from 2005 to 2011, he did prove himself a more progressive administrator than they were used to seeing from a PRI-ista. And as a presidential candidate he laid out the kind of pragmatic platform Colosio tried to envisage 18 years ago. Mexico’s gravest crisis is security — a never ending drug war has seen more than 55,000 murders and 10,000 disappearances since 2006 — and neither Peña nor his rivals offered much in the way of new solutions to that hydra-headed problem. (Peña last night had to reassure Mexicans — and Washington — that he has no plans to go soft on drug trafficking, as the PRI did in the late 20th century.) But Mexico’s limp economy and gaping inequality run a close second, and when I asked Peña last month about his presidential priorities, he went straight to the pocketbook issues: “Mexico urgently needs a series of structural reforms that will detonate its true economic potential for once and generate more public welfare.”

(MORE: Are Mexican Voters Taking a Gamble on the PRI?)

Among them, he said, was an energy overhaul — the same PRI dinosaurs who allegedly put a bullet through Colosio’s head would be apoplectic about Peña’s proposal to amend the Constitution to permit private and even foreign investment in Mexico’s state-run oil monopoly, Pemex — as well as labor, tax and social-security reforms. He has also pledged to rein in the nation’s economy-suffocating monopolies.

Yet critics say Peña, who is married to Angelica Rivera, one of Mexico’s famous telenovela (soap opera) stars, should start by dropping his own cozy relationship with the leviathan television network Televisa, which was the PRI’s mouthpiece in the 20th century and has allegedly given Peña favorable coverage. They also accused Peña’s campaign of vote buying — an echo of the old PRI’s standard modus operandi — which included handing out grocery and department-store debit cards at rallies.

But the PAN and PRD were accused of some of the same shenanigans. What the two losing parties really need to scrutinize this morning is a mirror, and then ask why Peña and the PRI were able to wedge themselves between Mexico’s conservative and liberal presidential votes this time.

They can start with the very real notion that López, who finished so strongly in 2006, should have won this year — and probably would have had he not become the unhinged leftist back in 2006, after electoral authorities gave the victory to Calderón with a razor-thin, half-percentage-point margin. López, who is an admired former Mexico City mayor but is known for his petulant streak, didn’t just protest the results; he had his supporters close down Mexico City’s streets for weeks. He still won the PRD’s 2012 nomination, and to his credit, he set a more moderate tone and had another strong finish on Sunday. But his 2006 antics were too fresh in too many voters’ minds: to them, the PRD, with López as its standard bearer, still seemed the party of the erratic left.

(MORE: From 2006: An Election Standoff in Mexico)

Even today, with a clear 6-point loss staring him in the face, López has yet to concede. Fortunately for the PRD, his likely successor for 2018, popular Mexico City mayor Marcelo Ebrard, looks more pragmatic.

The PAN, meanwhile, looks like a spent force 12 years after it played Mexico’s democratic hero. And that’s due largely to the dour, prickly figure of Calderón. His predecessor, Vicente Fox, wasn’t a particulary effective President, but he at least gave the PAN a more modern and appealing image that helped Mexicans forget the party’s stern, conservative Roman Catholic DNA. Calderón, however, is one of the most inept communicators in Mexican presidential history — and his party has suffered not just from his bold but ill-conceived military strategy against Mexico’s powerful drug cartels, but also from a sense that the PRI-ista prepotencia, or arrogance, of the 20th century was simply being replaced by PAN-ista prepotencia in the 21st.

All of that helped open the door for the PRI’s second chance as much as Televisa favoritism and gift cards did. At the same time, the fact that Peña was held to under 40% of the vote proves that while the PRI may have scored a presidential return, this was hardly a restoration. (It’s a reminder too that Mexico may need to create a second-round runoff election.) The PRI also looks likely to lose control of the lower house of Congress, and many of its gubernatorial candidates, especially in states where PRI corruption has persisted, were roundly defeated. Mexico’s fledgling democracy performed well in that regard  — which means the “PRI that’s coming” will have a much harder time amassing the kind of power the party once had.

This TIMES article is very biased!! LOOK AT FACEBOOK for people's true reactions!! (God bless social media!) NO BODY cultured and well informed voted for Pena Nieto! No one! Most mexican icons and intellectuals are in opposition to EPN's campaign (look at Revolucion Consciencia's facebook) He is, indeed, an embarrassment to our country! Here is an adept description of HOW EPN won the elections, as opposed to believing that Lopez is just "too left," which over-simplifies the fraudulent victory of the PRI. (ENJOY!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Smoke and mirrors! Or something all citizens of the

world should be aware of!

 

Do you even know? More than a thousand videos showing

vote fraud in Mexico. Peña Nieto, the virtual president denies it all! He

simply says, “My opponents set this whole massive thing up, the videos, the

lost ballots, the missing ballot-boxes, the Soriana cards (prepaid cars in the

amounts of $100, 500, 1000 pesos), all made up”

 

Media bought, cops bought, priistas (equivalent to US republicans)

bullying anyone trying to vote, cops stopping people from voting, bulling of

people who don’t agree with the results, you get the picture (W. Bush vs All Gore,

Florida like stage in all Mexican states)!

 

See for yourselves, the videos allegedly made by

opponents (some, by trusted media outside México), but Enrique Peña Nieto

insists “all made up”.

 

These are the few videos made for English speakers,

all videos created in just a few days. Pena says: “Actors hired” to make

Enrique Peña (virtual president) look bad? Can someone orchestrate all of it in

a few days, all over Mexican states? You be the judge:

The videos below are all in Spanish, but you don’ have

to speak Spanish to understand Spanish, just keep this in mind, the first shows

a congresswoman fully identified talking and explaining that the cards were to

incentivize their vote for the PRI. The opponents had already warned the IFE, official

governmental organization which organizes the elections, about it since February

this year :

In these other video, the cards shown are the cards (1800,

000); !they exist! Not false as he claims when he speaks in press conferences:

5.         Some

of the PRI members are, either very stupid or ignorant; or somebody told them do

whatever it takes to win, you won’t get in trouble; we have everyone in our

pockets. One member of his staff, fully identified, made a video giving away steak,

a stove, or money for votes:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

6.         And this

one shows the places set up under false pretenses such as, free health

checkups, free dental work, etc. You can see not only how they hand over money

(500 pesos bills) for votes, easy to understand, every one fully identified:

I’d like to hear your comments, after all México is your

neighbor. You should know what they are all about!

 

If you speak Spanish and still don’t believe after

seeing the videos, is evident that you are either a moron or un pendejo arrastrado. Remember! Thousands of videos have been steadily coming out since, and

before the election started.

 

And by the way, he is not declared president until December

(for now, he is considered, “virtual winner”). The opposition is still suing

him and his party. We’ll see what authorities will do about the burden of

proof.  You’ll have a chance to find out

what Mexican will do about this proof!

what an article! First of all he did not won himself the election, this election was a fraud, go to Mexico and realize how  everyday there are many protest all around the country against these results. The results are NOT OFICIAL yet, so the author should be more careful and respectful about it and trying to compare Colosio with Peña Nieto is way too far from the truth. Progressive administration from 2005-2011? Is this a joke? Has not the author heard anything about the ''Atenco'' conflict in which hundreds or residents were cruelly incarcerated and more than 27 women sexually abused by members of the police, all ordered by Enrique Pena Nieto.

As long as Televisa keeps intruding every day into the houses of the vast majority of Mexicans there will never be a Democracy.  For decades there was a ruling party and a single Tv network, a monopoly in politics and a monopoly in media: the perfect formula to keep people absolutely ignorant about any other political influence besides the PRI´s influence.  

  Millions of people in Mexico don´t even know anything about the PRI candidates, they only do what they hear on the television.  This network and its offshoots only highlight the bad stuff about the opposition parties while they only praise what PRI does (which is nothing good) and covers up ABSOLUTELY and entirely all their corruption, impunity, nepotism, frauds, embezzlement, murder, drug links, etc, etc.  

  Mexico doesn´t have a Democracy, it has a CLEPTOCRACY.

AMLO lost this election with his behavior after the last one. Right after the election last time,  I was convinced the PRI was dead and buried, and that the PRD would win this time after the PAN had twelve years in power - but the never-ending plantón hurt a lot of the people AMLO supposedly represented. Waiters in restaurants along Reforma, small shopkeepers, all took a big financial hit in those months, and AMLO showed he was petulant, more than anything.

It was basically a three way election.  The majority voted against him.  So the majority of Mexican voters did not get the president they chose.  Mexico needs a runoff election.

U.S. Citizens please BOYCOTT MEXICO, BUSINESS OR TRADE. IT IS A CORRUPT, UNDEMOCRATIC COUNTRY!! Overwhelming evidence of voter fraud by the PRI party,the return of an authoritarian government. You can see many YouTube videos.

Enough!

This Nieto criminal has all the money that the richest man in the world... we know his name, has given him.  He's criminal tentacles are far reaching.  This World Time article, for example is tainted with a certain bias.  It tries to imply that Nieto could turn out to be like Colosio.  FAR from the truth.  He's nothing but a puppet.  He is illiterate and uncultured. He is an embarrassment to all Mexicans.  It's a dark, dark, day for us.  Many are talking REVOLUTION.  They can count me in.

Well... you know that Slim has always been an ally of AMLO, right? If you didn't know then you haven't read enough. Proof? The both hate Televisa/Azteca, Slim got big bucks from rebuilding Mexico City's downtown, his son-in-law would have been AMLO's Secretary of Tourism and his grand-son is a leader of #yosoy132. Stop living in fairytale-land.

of the PRI members are, either very stupid or ignorant; or somebody told them do

one shows the places set up under false pretenses such as, free health

I’d like to hear your comments, after all México is your

neighbor. You should know what they are all about!

 

If you speak Spanish and still don’t believe after

seeing the videos, is evident that you are either a moron or un pendejo arrastrado. Remember! Thousands of videos have been steadily coming out since, and

before the election started.

 

And by the way, he is not declared president until December

(for now, he is considered, “virtual winner”). The opposition is still suing

him and his party. We’ll see what authorities will do about the burden of

proof.  You’ll have a chance to find out

what Mexican will do about this proof!

He didn't win, he bought his way to the Presidency, that is not democracy my friend, also there a thousands of claims in regards to discrepancies between counted votes and the ones showing up in IFE's results, 10 murdered victims on that day related to voting incidents, people who stole votes at gun point  and left with them and then burned them, this is hell not a democracy.

We cannot let him rule us, we deserve much more than that, it's a shame people sold us all for a bag of rice.

Smoke and mirrors! Or something all citizens of the

world should be aware of!

 

Do you even know? More than a thousand videos showing

vote fraud in Mexico. Peña Nieto, the virtual president denies it all! He

simply says, “My opponents set this whole massive thing up, the videos, the

lost ballots, the missing ballot-boxes, the Soriana cards (prepaid cars in the

amounts of $100, 500, 1000 pesos), all made up”

 

Media bought, cops bought, priistas (equivalent to US republicans)

bullying anyone trying to vote, cops stopping people from voting, bulling of

people who don’t agree with the results, you get the picture (W. Bush vs All Gore,

Florida like stage in all Mexican states)!

 

See for yourselves, the videos allegedly made by

opponents (some, by trusted media outside México), but Enrique Peña Nieto

insists “all made up”.

 

These are the few videos made for English speakers,

all videos created in just a few days. Pena says: “Actors hired” to make

Enrique Peña (virtual president) look bad? Can someone orchestrate all of it in

a few days, all over Mexican states? You be the judge:

to speak Spanish to understand Spanish, just keep this in mind, the first shows

a congresswoman fully identified talking and explaining that the cards were to

incentivize their vote for the PRI. The opponents had already warned the IFE, official

governmental organization which organizes the elections, about it since February

this year :

You are also hearing voices and need to swallow down Risperidone if you cannot critically think that Mexico does not have a pell grant system because all those corrupted cartel are downloading and viewing U.S. freeman content on their computers(People vs. Freeman), they are trapping the government like a bunch of little brats, they are racial profiling towards whites, blacks, and chinese because they are not agreeing to be more diverse and institutionalized. They all look like big headed thugs standing and staring eachother. IF mexico acted mature, the Dream act would have been approved a long time ago and probably would have not treated you criminals like they do to Joran or Sandusky. Your country looks like a midget thugs communist type. It is easy to memorize a Spanish dictionary, that all you are worth.. a penny. an expired ebook.

Enrique Pena Nieto " El Nino Rey Del PRI" will do what Calderon wasn't able to do FIX THE ECONOMY AND THE WAR ON DRUGS. 

How he won the Presidency ?     Well,  I invite everyone to read  Negocios de Familia.   

2777
2777

The economy has never been better. The external debt was paid and we have the largest reserves ever. The war on drugs began as a result of the PRI. How he won the presidency? You might want to read Proceso's magazine on that, the issue that came out today. Or go and talk to actual people who got offered money for their votes. I am not talking about a 10 person thing, it involved thousands of people.

sparta79

 Are @#$% kidding me...?  largest reserves, stable economy, no peso

drop, etc... all useless in the real world outside of the golden palaces

inhabited by the elite rich (whom gotten only richer under PAN

governments) and the Chapo Guzman's of Mexico along with their minion

corrupt politicians. The gap between the rich and the poor has only

widen under thugs like Fox and Calderon, our economy has always been a good one, even in the PRI

years, remember back in the early 90s when Salinas told us that we were

headed to become a 1st world country and even some respected economists

agreed with him, even today there is proof of how rich Mexico is,

currently we are one of the 12 strongest economies in the world in some

studies above Sweden and Switzerland, the problem is that money is

either not distributed properly or outright stolen and because of this our

infrastructure and quality of life have never reflected our economic strength. Only a few and mostly the real bosses of PAN and PRI have benefited.

PAN which in the end now is their

turn to pay back the favor to Nieto, a favor that they owe from

back in 2000 when PRI allowed them to win on a fake change of power,

proof of that is all the obvious criminals that needed to go to jail

such as our beloved Elba Esther "wife of chucky" leader of the corrupt

SNTE only got more power, hey her son in law was even the sub-secretary of

the Public Education Secretary back when Pan's Josefina Vasquez Mota

was

the main boss. So lets get things straight, you only need to look at

your paycheck and remember how much you were able to buy back in 2000

and what you can buy now, the result is a full on failure and a waste of the vote for change back in 2000 the same waste we are

headed if indeed the Enrique Peña Nieto

puppet gets his way

What a bunch of conspiratorial mumbo jumbo! The fact is el Peje is a lunatic who nobody trusts, the poor Josefina was stigmatised by the current President's pathetic approach to the drug war and EPN represents the party that deep down all Mexicans are nostalgic about

Conspirational? My, you haven't seen any of the numerous videos in Youtube, have you?

Lupe von Götzen

No, the fact is that AMLO had concrete prospects for Mexico, he had the vision and the enthusiasm of turning Mexico into a 1st world country. Josefina is just like Calderon, they can't handle Mexico's current situation and EPN will be "the PRI that's coming." It will be a more violent, neoliberal, fascist, dictatorship. 

It is very clear to us that EPN won the presidency by buying votes, buying television networks, and committing fraud just like the "old PRI." We had our eyes open this time around, we have seen it with our own eyes, this fraud happened in front of us and we will not conceive another oligarchy at the hands of the PRI.
