Resumen

VIDAL CORREA, Fernanda. The Strength of Independent Candidates and their Opportunities to Contend vis-à-vis Political Parties in Mexico. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2019, vol.64, n.235, pp.427-462. ISSN 0185-1918.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/fcpys.2448492xe.2019.235.61729.

This research aims to offer theoretical and empirical elements that contribute to the debate about independent candidates. The central argument is that although these types of nominations may be necessary for democratization in Mexico, the design of the electoral system continues to favour political parties. Based on the analysis of the 2014-2015 electoral process, this essay sustains that regulations do not compensate for institutional disadvantages independent candidates experience with respect to political parties. This essay examines regulations controlling access to the ballot and public funds. The study employs aggregated data, including nominations and final figures on federal and local councils, governorships and municipal presidencies. A descriptive method was followed with data collection from official sources and electoral archives.

Palabras llave : independent candidates; electoral system; political parties; elections; nominations; democratization; Mexico.
