Today, Mexico went to the polls. Not to vote for the Presidency, but mid-term elections for Congress and Governorships. The result is that the political landscape is more fragmented than ever with no one party dominating. For a long time, Mexico has had three strong parties and a few smaller ones. Now there are five or more with sizeable support, including an independent candidate who won Nuevo Leon, Mexico´s most important state economically. Happily the day passed fairly peacefully.
