Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Honestly what I was trying to imply is that clientelism isn't enough.  I'm saying that I question whether the PRI won't need to alter election results through actually stealing ballot boxes, as various parties did in 1988 and 2006 to pull off a win.  That's a lot harder sell than simple clientelism. At the very least, I'm thinking that that kind of fixing the election would prompt protests like in 2006, if not larger.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
