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

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

National parties

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%).

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

This list is complete as of 2006.
