Is Mexico a democratic country or not? Give arguments in favour of your answer

Answer :

Mexico became independent in 1930. It holds elections every six years. But until 2000, every election was won by a party called PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party). PRI used many dirty tricks to win the elections.

It spent a large sum of money for its candidates. Opposition parties did contest elections, but never managed to win. Media largely ignored the activities of the opposition political parties. But from 2000, the scenario has changed.

In the 2000 election, Vicente Fox of National Action Party (PAN) in alliance with Ecologist Green Party of Mexico (PVEM) became the first opposition candidate to win the election. Vicente Fox became the President of Mexico. After him, Felipe Calderone of National Action Party (PAN) became the President. It suggests that Mexico has marched towards democracy.
