According to official estimates (pending TRIFE approval) from the National Electoral Institute, the alliance led by President’s Peña Nieto party is set to retain its majority in the lower house of congress. However; a larger number of congressmen will belong to smaller parties. The Green Party, in alliance with the PRI, was projected to win 45 seats and a new leftist party, MORENA, founded by former Mexico City mayor and perennial presidential runner-up Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, was projected to win 35 seats.
One thing that characterizes the smaller parties is their geographical clustering. My interactive map and charts should clarify the spatial patterns. All votes were computed using the coalition formula described in Art. 12, inciso 2; Art. 311 inciso c) of the LEGIPE
The PRI doesn’t have much support among residents of the Distrito Federal and some other urban areas.
And here is an equal area cartogram (where the area equals the population) of the PRI vote in the 300 electoral districts.
The PAN has always been very strong in the Bajio, though it has lost lots of votes since Calderón was elected president.
The PRD has very little support in northern Mexico.
Former PRD presidential candidate AMLO left to found his own party, MORENA, and split the left-wing vote. He has a lot of support in the Federal District where he used to be mayor and seems to have more support than the PRD in northern Mexico.
MORENA vs PRD
Corrupt to its core, the Green Party is strong in Chiapas.
Movimiento Ciudadano was the party with the most votes in the state of Jalisco.
Nueva Alianza (PANAL)
Partido Encuentro Social (PS) - A sort of conservative party rumored to have ties with the Secretaría de Gobernación, not surprisingly it captured its largest share of the vote in Hidalgo
An Independent candidate won a federal electoral district for the first time ever
With only 3132 more votes the PT would have reached the threshold of 3% of the effective vote to remain a registered party, but thanks to massive fraud it failed. This comes as no surprise in a country where imperialist lackey, western interloper, and former presidential candidate Gabriel Quadri advocates the bombing of the peaceful and happy people of Korea.
The Partido Humanista also didn’t reach the threshold to maintain its registration.
There was a campaign to promote the null vote, but it was actually lower than in other years.
