November 30, 2012                5:58 p.m.

When Enrique Peña Nieto assumes the Mexican presidency on Saturday, returning to power a once-autocratic party that ruled for seven decades, he will immediately confront a sluggish economy and a bloody war against drug gangs.

How he will handle those two problems is the biggest question surrounding the incoming government.

Peña Nieto, 46, and his Institutional Revolutionary Party want to shift the focus away from the battle against drug cartels that consumed and ultimately haunted outgoing President Felipe Calderon.

But Peña Nieto is inheriting a bruised, terrified and polarized nation that has lived through its most violent period since its revolution a century ago. Tens of thousands of people — mayors, police, journalists, lawyers, officials, businessmen as well as criminals — have been killed. Thousands are missing, and human rights abuses by authorities have skyrocketed in the six-year campaign against the drug gangs.

Despite the elimination of several top drug lords, the flow of narcotics has not slowed. The gangs have only extended their influence from the border with the U.S. deep into southern Mexico and beyond.

Calderon, meanwhile, will take on a teaching position at Harvard University, swiftly leaving the country he ruled since 2006. Presidents are limited to one term in Mexico, and Calderon’s National Action Party came in a poor third in last summer’s election.

The PRI finished first, but with only about 38% of the vote, limiting the mandate that Peña Nieto will enjoy and complicating his ability to push through ambitious reforms he promised. He will have to struggle to balance competing forces within his party: the so-called dinosaurs who evoke old-school, heavy-handed politics versus the U.S.- or Europe-educated modernizing younger members. His Cabinet, announced Friday, contains both.

“The most serious problem for Peña Nieto is his desire to draw a line between those traditional PRI practices … and the image of modernity that is incompatible with the old way of doing politics,” commentator Ezra Shabot said in an El Universal news column this month.

Instead of the drug war, Peña Nieto would like to talk about the economy, foreign investment and jobs. But security issues will be unavoidable from Day 1.

The new president has pledged, rather vaguely, to “reduce violence” and cut the homicide rate as a way to return to besieged Mexicans a sense of safety and tranquillity. Critics fear that means pulling punches when it comes to persecution of drug gangs.

In the past, the PRI was known to enter into pactos, or deals, with cartel leaders to keep the peace and share the profits.

Peña Nieto has angrily denied that he plans to cut deals with drug gangs, something that would be more complicated today because of their fragmented nature and the acute viciousness of one of the newer and now-dominant groups, the Zetas.

He has said he will keep the army deployed throughout the country, as Calderon did, at least initially. In addition, he will demote the U.S.-backed federal police while building up a national gendarmerie that in theory would eventually replace the military in the drug offensive.

Despite the PRI’s long nationalistic streak, Peña Nieto says he intends to maintain and would like to expand Mexico’s close cooperation with the United States in security matters. Currently, the U.S. supplies intelligence data to Mexican authorities for the tracking of traffickers and is training thousands of police officers, judges, prosecutors and others as part of a $2-billion aid program.

He has already hired Gen. Oscar Naranjo, retired head of the Colombian national police, as a special security advisor. Naranjo is beloved by the Americans and is expected to bring on board U.S.-promoted tactics from the Colombian conflict, including the increased use of small, vetted police or military units for raids.

Calderon’s strategy was faulted for concentrating on military force and underestimating cartel strength while failing to go after the money, much of it laundered through Mexican businesses and banks.

Peña Nieto is promising a new, reformed PRI, one that will not revert to its old habits of election-rigging, paying off supporters, co-opting the opposition and occasionally beating them up.

The Mexico of today is very different from that of nearly two decades ago, when the last PRI president was elected. Some, but certainly not all, of its institutions are stronger, such as the Supreme Court and the news media, and can provide a counterbalance to the presidency.

Yet six years of bloodshed have left a dispirited society that may be willing to give ground to organized-crime kingpins if it at least means being left alone.

Polling data released this week show roughly equivalent portions of Mexicans saying the drug war was Calderon’s most important achievement and his biggest failure. And about two-thirds of those surveyed said they believed the cartels were winning the war.

Serious systemic problems, like impunity and corruption — perfected under the long PRI reign — will continue to hinder any progress Peña Nieto hopes to make.

On the economy, Peña Nieto has stressed his plan to open up the state-run oil giant Pemex to private and foreign investment, long a taboo here. To do so means challenging the Pemex unions that have long allied themselves with the PRI.

Already, another key reform, on labor workplace rules, passed the Legislature only after the PRI gutted measures that would have forced powerful unions to be more accountable and transparent.

2 July 2012                  05:50 ET

Mexico’s old ruling party, the PRI, is set to return to power as early official results indicate its candidate Enrique Pena Nieto has won the presidential election.

Mr Pena Nieto, 45, is on about 37%, several points ahead of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who has not conceded.

Thousands of police were on duty for the vote, amid fears of intimidation from drug gangs.

Mexicans were also electing a new congress and some state governors.

‘New face’

Analysis

After what was, by and large, an orderly and peaceful vote, the partial result from the country’s electoral authorities appears to confirm that it was Mr Pena Nieto’s night.

As soon as the traditional speech from incumbent President Felipe Calderon was over – in which he called Mr Pena Nieto the president-elect – the candidate addressed the crowds of his jubilant supporters.

He spoke of reconciliation, of governing for all Mexicans and said that “Mexico had won” no less than three times.

But with his nearest challenger, Mr Lopez Obrador, waiting for all the results before accepting defeat, Mr Pena Nieto will have a tough time winning over his critics.

Celebrations at the headquarters of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) started after the polls closed.

Mr Pena Nieto declared: “We all won in this election. Mexico won.”

“This is just the start of the work we have before us.”

He thanked Mexican voters for giving the PRI a second chance, saying his administration would have a “new way of governing”.

The election campaign was dominated by the economy and the war on drugs.

“There will be no pact nor truce with organised crime,” Mr Pena Nieto said.

He had been presented as the new face of the PRI, a break with the party’s long and at times murky past that included links with drug gangs.

The party held on to power for 71 years until it was defeated in 2000.

Mr Pena Nieto built his reputation on the “pledges” he set out for his governorship in Mexico state, focusing on public works and improvement of infrastructure.

Outgoing President Felipe Calderon has congratulated Mr Pena Nieto and promised to work with him during the transition to his inauguration in December.

The main contenders: Pena Nieto (left), Vazquez Mota (centre) and Lopez Obrador (right)

“I sincerely hope for the smooth running of the next government for the benefit of all Mexicans,” Mr Calderon said, in a televised address.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, running for the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) is in second place with about 33% of the vote.

The official quick count, published by the electoral authorities (IFE), is based on returns from a sample of around 7,500 polling stations across Mexico.

Mr Lopez Obrador, who was the runner-up in the 2006 election, has not conceded victory.

“The last word hasn’t been spoken yet,” he said.

“We simply do not have all the facts. We are lacking the legality of the electoral process.”

In 2006, he refused to recognise Mr Calderon’s victory and led street protests for months afterwards.

1929: Dominates Mexican politics from its foundation as National Revolutionary Party (PNR) by revolutionary leader Plutarco Elias Calles

Mexico’s PRI

  • 1934: Nationalises oil industry
  • 1946: Party takes name of Partido Revolucionario Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party)
  • 1988: Leftist coalition defeated by PRI’s Carlos Salinas in a vote widely seen as rigged
  • 1989: PRI’s first state election defeat
  • March 1994: PRI presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio murdered; replacement Ernesto Zedillo wins election
  • Sept 1994: Outgoing president’s brother Raul Salinas accused of organising murder of PRI secretary general. Jailed but conviction later quashed
  • 1997: PRI loses majority of Congress
  • 2000: PRI loses presidency to Vicente Fox

Josefina Vazquez Mota, the candidate of the governing National Action Party (PAN) had already accepted defeat.

The initial results from IFE put her on some 25%.

Security display

Almost 80 million people were eligible to cast their ballots on Sunday.

Police and army were deployed to protect voters from intimidation by drug cartels at polling booths.

Officials said the voting was largely peaceful, but reported some initial problems as a number of stations opened later than planned.

“Everything has been very good,” one voter in Mexico City told the BBC. “But people aren’t very motivated to vote, perhaps because the candidates make so many promises but we’re always worse off.”

With nearly half the Mexican population living in poverty, the economy was one of the main issues in the campaign.

Unemployment remains low at roughly 4.5%, but a huge divide remains between the rich and the poor.

Another issue dominating the campaign was the war on drugs, launched nearly six years ago by President Calderon, who is constitutionally barred from seeking re-election.

The main opposition candidates have been critical of Mr Calderon’s policies.

They point out that more than 55,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence since 2006.

Mexicans were also electing 500 deputies, 128 senators, six state governors, the head of government in the Federal District (which includes Mexico City) and local governments.

June 23, 2012           11:27 am

Mexican authorities have acknowledged that they made a mistake when they claimed to have arrested the son of fugitive drug lord Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman earlier in the week.

The man captured by Mexican marines Thursday and initially identified as Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar is in fact Felix Beltran, a 23-year-old car dealer, the federal attorney general’s office said in a brief statement late Friday.

The gaffe is an embarrassment to supporters of President Felipe Calderon, who had hailed the arrest, coming just days before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election, as an important victory in the government’s bloody war on drug cartels.

In its statement, the attorney-general’s office did not give details on how it had established Beltran’s identity nor did it explain how the mistake was made. In presenting the man to reporters, the military had said “intelligence work” had led to the arrest in Zapopan, a suburb of Guadalajara.

A woman claiming to be Beltran’s mother held a news conference with an attorney Friday and pointed out the error. She offered pictures of her son.

Earlier this month, the United States placed the Guzman son on its Treasury Department black list, along with other members of the family, barring them from doing business with U.S. companies or individuals and alleging they play roles in Chapo Guzman’s multibillion-dollar drug business.

June 21, 2012

A man believed to be the son of Mexico’s most-wanted drug trafficker has been detained by the Mexican Navy, one of a series of recent moves aimed at toppling the elusive kingpin, Mexican officials said Thursday.

Jesús Aflredo Guzmán Salazar, 26, “the presumed son” of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known by his nickname, El Chapo, or Shorty, was arrested Thursday morning in Jalisco State, on the central Pacific Coast, along with another person, the navy said in a statement, but it did not say what charges they might face.

The two were taken to Mexico City and presented to the news media, with Mr. Guzmán Salazar, whom the navy described as “one of the main directors of the Sinaloa cartel,” looking somber and downcast.

Mr. Guzmán Salazar, Mexican officials said, managed his father’s real estate holdings and coordinated most of the drug organization’s shipments of cocaine and marijuana to the United States. American drug agents, Mexican officials said, assisted in providing information leading to his arrest.

The United States Treasury Department this month said it had placed Mr. Guzmán Salazar and his mother, María Alejandrina Salazar Hernández, on a financial sanctions list, a move intended to block money laundering by barring American businesses and citizens from doing business with them. He had been indicted in 2009 on several drug-related charges in a federal court in Illinois, making it possible he could be extradited to the United States.

The Mexican authorities in recent months have arrested men said to be crucial operatives in the Sinaloa drug organization run by Mr. Guzmán Loera.

Mr. Guzmán Loera, 55, who is believed to lead a worldwide cocaine- and marijuana-trafficking empire worth several billion dollars, faces drug trafficking and other charges in the United States and Mexico. He has been sought since escaping from prison in 2001 in a laundry cart after bribing his guards.

His family members, too, have been sought by the authorities and rival traffickers.

In 2008, another son, Édgar Guzmán López, 22, one of several children Mr. Guzmán Loera is believed to have fathered with different partners, was killed in a gunfight in Sinaloa, Mr. Guzmán Loera’s home state. Last year, a cousin, Juan Guzmán Rocha, 39, was found dead of gunshot wounds on a Sinaloa highway.

Another son, Ivan Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, served a few years in prison on money-laundering charges but was released in 2008 by a judge who found the evidence lacking. That son and another, Ovidio Guzmán Lopez, were placed on the Treasury Department “black list” in May.

Griselda López Pérez, now a former wife of Mr. Guzmán Loera, was detained on unspecified charges in May 2010 for less than a day and released.

There has been widespread speculation here that Mr. Guzmán Loera would be caught before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election. The incumbent party of President Felipe Calderón, who has taken an aggressive stance against drug gang leaders, has been trailing in the polls behind Enrique Peña Nieto, the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, which has been fighting a reputation for being more accommodating to traffickers.

In August, Mr. Guzmán Loera’s current wife, Emma Coronel, a 22-year-old former beauty queen, gave birth to twins in a hospital in the Los Angeles area, but was not detained because there were no charges pending against her. She slipped back across the border with the babies.

18 May 2012         14:09 ET

A third Mexican general has been detained for alleged links with a drug trafficking cartel.

Gen Ricardo Escorcia Vargas was detained as part of an investigation into organised crime.

On Tuesday two other senior officers – Gen Tomas Angeles Dauahare and Gen Roberto Dawe Gonzalez – were put under house arrest in connection with the same allegations, which they deny.

They are suspected of involvement with the Beltran Leyva cartel.

The organisation has smuggled cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs into the United States.

But Mexico’s powerful drug cartels have been under systematic attack since President Felipe Calderon launched a war on drugs six years ago.

The army has played a key role in that effort, with troops deployed across the country.

Drug-related violence since 2006 has killed more than 50,000 people in Mexico.

Strategic positions

The three generals detained this week have all occupied strategic posts in Mexico’s anti-drugs effort.

Gen Angeles was assistant defence minister from 2006 to 2008, when he retired – a decision which surprised Mexican commentators.

Gen Dawe was the commander of an army division in Colima state, in Mexico’s Pacific coast, an important trafficking route.

Gen Escorcia was in charge of the military in Morelos state, the command centre of the Beltran Leyva cartel.

A judge has put Gen Angeles and Gen Dawe under house arrest for 40 days, while the investigation proceeds.

A statement from the Attorney General’s office says several witnesses have already testified against the generals.

Carlos Fuentes of Mexico

May 15, 2012

The prize-winning writer Carlos Fuentes, modern Mexico’s greatest novelist and indefatigable author of screenplays, stories and often-scolding commentaries, died Tuesday at a hospital in Mexico City. He was 83.

The national culture council announced Fuentes’ death. Although it did not immediately specify a cause, some Mexican news reports said he had checked in a night earlier with heart problems. But the prolific Fuentes, who said he had begun a new novel on the heels of another recently completed one, was not publicly known to be ailing.

“I deeply lament the death of our beloved and admired Carlos Fuentes, a writer and Mexican of the world,” read a message posted on President Felipe Calderon’s Twitter account.

PHOTOS: Notable Deaths of 2012

Fuentes, who also served as a Mexican diplomat, gained wide acclaim for novels such as “Aura” and “The Death of Artemio Cruz,” part of a generation of world-class writers from Latin America. U.S. movie audiences may recall the film based on the Fuentes novel “The Old Gringo,” which starred Gregory Peck and Jane Fonda.

He won numerous literary prizes and was perennially mentioned as a possible candidate for the Nobel Prize in literature, but never won it.

At home, Fuentes remained until the end outspoken on issues of the day. His most recent column — about the presidential election in France — was published Tuesday in the daily Reforma newspaper. Disdainful of many Mexican politicians, he tacked a note at the end taking aim at the tone of Mexico’s own presidential race, which he said sacrificed discussion of big issues for candidates’ petty attempts to knock each other down.

Fuentes said he found elixir in work. “My system of youth is to work a lot, to always have a project pending,” he told the Spanish newspaper El Pais in an interview published Monday. He said he had just completed a novel called “Federico on his Balcony” and had begun a new one.
