PRI PRIMARIES?

In Mexico, Roberto Madrazo, the 47-year-old governor of southeastern Tabasco state, is challenging former Interior Minister Francisco Labastida as the presidential nominee of the powerful Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). With a primary open to all voters scheduled for Nov. 7, a recent Louis Harris poll shows Madrazo at least seven percentage points ahead of Labastida. Madrazo apparently has climbed to the top of opinion polls by portraying himself as an outsider, blasting the market-oriented policies of past governments that condemned millions to poverty. "What Mexico wants is not populism, not neoliberalism," he says. "It wants a market economy with a human face." Mexico's presidential elections are slated for July 2000. Stay tuned.
