A series of unofficial referendums on elections, political reforms and electoral participation was held in Mexico on 27 August 1995.[1] It was organised by the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), who proposed a detailed reform for democratization,[2] that the country engage in free and reformed elections[3] and that the EZLN convert itself into a political party[4] and form a united front[5] with other opposition parties.[6] Another referendum question sought to establish equality for women in government and administration.[7] All these measures passed, but this unofficial referendum appears to have had little effect on Mexican governance.
