This chapter analyses the historical background, which led to the emergence of divided government in the 1990s, and the way in which this new political environment was managed during the 1997–2000 Congress. The analysis describes changes in the internal organization of the Chamber of Deputies, and the formation of coalitions to support presidential initiatives. To provide better insight into the coalition formation process, it reviews the experiences of the 1997–2000 Congress in passing the three budgets sent to it by President Zedillo.
