List of political parties in Mexico

This article lists political parties in Mexico.

Mexico has a multi-party system, which means that there are more than two dominant political parties.

Nationally, there are three large political parties that dominate: the PRI, the MORENA, and the PAN. Other smaller political parties survive in isolation or by forming local coalitions with any of the big three.
