This article lists political parties in Mexico.

Mexico has a multi-party system, which means that there are more than three dominant political parties.

Nationally, there are three large political parties that dominate: the PRI, the PAN, and the PRD. Other smaller political parties survive in isolation or by forming local coalitions with any of the big three.

National parties[edit]

As of 2017, Mexico has seven nationally recognized political parties by the Federal Electoral Institute. National recognition was given to those parties that secured representation in Congress (effectively, a share of the popular vote greater than 2%). Under Mexican law, parties are listed in the order in which they were first registered, thus:

In terms of their congressional representation and share of the national vote, only PRI, PAN and the PRD can be considered major parties.

Other political parties[edit]

Local parties[edit]

Local parties are registered with the Electoral Institute of each Mexican state according to their own criteria and regulations, which may differ from those of INE but maintaining a national relation due to the highest court in the law of political parties, the SCJN. This list is complete as of 2006.

Former parties[edit]

During the 19th century the two most important parties were the Liberals (Liberales) and the Conservatives (Conservadores).
