    With quick count results from 95% of the casillas, the PRI looks to have captured 39% of the valid vote, with an almost 10% margin over the PAN.

  • Reforma estimates that the PRI will have 233 seats in the Chamber of Deputies. To command an absolute majority, they will need only bring along the PVEM contingent (22 seats).

    The Left fared poorly. The share of the vote going to all leftist parties was 20.6%, compared to 31.9% in 2006.  The PRD in particular did poorly with only 12.9% of the valid vote (72 seats), while the PT, now López Obrador’s de facto party, did better than expected, with 4.1% of the votes and 13 seats.

  • Voter participation rate was 45%, higher than the typical mid-term election. Null votes were 5.4% of total ballots cast, compared to 2.8% in 2006. The predicted repudiation by voters of the political system did not materialize.
