Resumen

MEDELLIN MENDOZA, Laura Nelly. La crisis de la seguridad pública y los resultados electorales en el retorno del PRI a Nuevo León. Un análisis retrospectivo. Región y sociedad [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.65, pp.293-321. ISSN 1870-3925.

This article reviews the recent public security problem on Nuevo Leon's public agenda. It highlights how this problem has potentially affected the governing party's political capital by examining midterm and gubernatorial election results. During the period of study, 2003-2009, the government tackled high crime rates by developing specific laws and public policies, indicating an institutional restructuring in this area. We find evidence that in a context of high public insecurity, the governing party lost legislative and mayoral seats during the midterms, yet the governor's race was not affected despite the fact that high murder rates connected to drug trafficking and high perceptions of insecurity persisted throughout the governing party's term in office.

Palabras llave : Nuevo León; ruling party; elections; public security; crime rates; perception of insecurity.
