Mexico: Party system on the edge of the precipice
Mexico’s party system is at risk of collapse. The signs are clear: opportunistic alliances between parties of different orientations; social polarization around a caudilista figure ; officialdom that does not end up becoming institutionalized; a crisis of representation between parties and citizens; the appearance of business parties or black money in campaigns.
Political parties: between love and hate
Political parties are necessary for the functioning of the democratic system but at the same time they can provoke antipathy in the citizenry. In Latin America, confidence in them is only 13%, which shows that they no longer express the collective will.
