This chapter discusses federalism and centrism in Mexico. In Mexico, discussions of federalism dominate a large space in the political terrain. Under Mexico's system of presidentialism, ‘federal control’ meant centralized control by the federal executive of government at all levels of society. The chapter begins by discussing the federalization of Mexican Law and the political foundations of federal power, and the federalization by the Constitutional Amendment. It then describes the transition in Mexico's federal government, highlighting the dramatic change in the political system in 2000.
