translated from Spanish: Restaurant PRI (5): return of absolutist presidentialism

in a survey conducted in 1964 by the political scientists Gabriel Almond and Sidney Verba in several countries on the civic culture, the results in Mexico were not surprising: two values they dominated the conscious and the unconscious collective: the Mexican Revolution as ideal of Justice and the President of the Republic as the dominant parental figure. In his book the presidential succession in 1910, Francisco I. Madero became one of the proposed analytical most important to characterize the dictator Porfirio Díaz: absolute power, institutional power over rules and balances that rested on a person.

The PRI political system, therefore, moved – thesis of Daniel Cosío Villegas, Manuel Camacho, and Luis Javier Garrido, among others-, – PNR, PRM, and PRI – party as an instrument of power of the President of the Republic. The collapse of the PRI system was not the power structure, but presidential errors away from the PRI in the society.
