Resumen

MAGAR, ERIC  y  ROMERO, VIDAL. MEXICO: Reforms Despite Divided Government. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.265-285. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2008000100013.

2007 was the first year of Felipe Calderón, of the National Action Party, as president. The new government made the fight against organized crime a priority, relying on the army instead of civil police forces for the task. Three important changes to statutes were successfully negotiated between president and parties: the civil servants pensions law (to cut a bubbling deficit in public finance); the creation of new taxes (a slight increase, but for the first time in decades, in government’s revenue capacity); and an electoral reform (as a result to the post-election crisis of 2006). We also review local elections held in 14 states, in which the Revolutionary Institutional Party won back some positions it had lost in the recent past.

Palabras clave : Mexico; Law and Order; Taxes; Pensions law; Electoral reform; Local elections; Felipe Calderón; Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
