This article focuses on the Party of the Institutional Revolution (PRI). It looks at how the PRI evolved from a vertical and hierarchical structure to one that manages its internal pressures to split through a cooperative and conditional bargain between the National Executive Committee (CEN) and the governors. It then considers changes to gubernatorial candidate selection within the PRI and shows how the political conflict between state and center parties was resolved. The article also provides data on the kinds of party politicians that were recruited and won gubernatorial nominations under hegemony.
