It’s not if you win or lose…
Perhaps the most critical moment in establishing the credibility of the Parliamentary process happens before Parliament even opens: namely, the people’s participation in a free, fair, inclusive electoral process.

Reading the foreign (and much of the Mexican) press, one gets the sense that what is going on here is an attempt to annul the election of Enrique Peña Nieto or to install AMLO in the Presidency. I don’t say that isn’t a goal among some of those making complaints, but it seems a secondary goal to something much more important: the credibility of the electoral process itself.
While representative parliaments chosen by geographical region and an elected chief executive are not the only possible forms of democracy, that is the system under which Mexico is governed. The issue right now is less which candidate received the most valid votes for the chief executive position, but whether the people participated in a free, fair, inclusive electoral process.
If not, people will consider alternatives.
