… while PRI can also claim victory

Despite the losses in Oaxaca, Puebla, and Sinaloa, the election results reinforce the PRI’s position as Mexico’s dominant political party.  They won nine of the 12 gubernatorial races; the PRI’s victories included defeating the PAN in Aguascalientes and Tlaxcala and dethroning the PRD in its historic stronghold of Zacatecas. Party president Beatriz Paredes said, “Without any doubt, the PRI is the number one electoral political force in the country. With the data that we have, our triumph is truly resounding.” (Reforma 7/5)
