This article discusses the political elites in Mexico and places them within a democratic setting. It notes that despite the country's long-awaited transformation to an electoral democracy, little attention has been given to Mexican political leadership. It examines the political recruitment process and the differences between the democratic and predemocratic eras. The article also identifies some areas of political elite studies, such as how the political leaders are socialized.

Keywords: political elites; electoral democracy; Mexican political leadership; political recruitment process; democratic era; predemocratic era; political elite studies
