2006: The Presidential Election and its Consequences
El Colegio de México
third of Mexicans still believe that the 2006 presidential election
was irregular or fraudulent. In this seminar we will examine
the election within the framework of the slow and difficult road
towards democracy. Among the issues explored will be: the changes
undergone in Mexico during Vicente Fox’s presidential term;
the reasons why Mexican elections are among the most expensive
in the world; the role played by political parties; and the difficult
challenges facing society today. In other words, we will dissect
the state of Mexican democracy.
Aguayo is Professor of International Studies at El Colegio
de México. He is also active in
the promotion of democracy and human rights through organizations
such as Civic Alliance and the Mexican Academy of Human Rights.
His weekly column appears in Reforma and he is a panelist on
the weekly television program Primer
