The vote is over, but PAN keeps losing

Losing elections can be hell on a political party. Just ask the National Action Party (PAN), which ruled the country until Dec. 1.

As recently as October, the PAN had 1,868,604 registered active members.

But in an interview published in El Universal Friday, PAN President Gustavo Madero acknowledged that many of the members had joined hoping that they’d get jobs under the center-right party, which had the presidency 2000-2012.

So how many members does Madero think will remain with the PAN now as the party finishes its latest registration drive? 500,000.

It could be a long, long time before the PAN gains relevancy again in Mexico.
