GOMEZ PERALTA, Héctor. The anti-systematic roots of the Partido Acción Nacional. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2012, vol.57, n.214, pp.187-210. ISSN 0185-1918.
The paper analyzes the different groups that formed the National Action Party (PAN). Contrary to widespread idea by the PAN and its supporters that the party was born with a citizen profile and a democratic project, this article shows how the first program of the PAN was heir to two different conservative currents, but also anti-systemics: on the one hand, the heirs of the social-Catholic tradition, continuing the struggle against the Jacobin State emerged from revolution; on the other hand the secular right that sought the economic industrialization and the administrative modernization of the Mexican State, taking as a reference to the Hispanic tradition of the Spanish Falange.
