Here in Chapala (I hear) a very hectic atmosphere. PAN members just gave a big speech on the malecon.... flags, celebrations,...police sirenes....
Nationally, for the time being, a lot of sad PAN faces.

I also believe that Mexico DF will be governed by PRD (El Universal newspaper).

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's old guard sailed back into power after a 12-year hiatus Sunday as the official preliminary vote count handed a victory to Enrique Pena Nieto, whose party was long accused of ruling the country through corruption and patronage.
The second place candidate, leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, refused to concede, saying he would wait for a full count.
The Federal Electoral Institute's representative count said Pena Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, won about 38 percent of the vote, prompting wild cheers from a party that was voted out in 2000 after 71 autocratic years in power. Lopez Obrador of the Democratic Revolution Party had 31 percent and Josefina Vazquez Mota of the ruling National Action Party had about 25 percent, according to the institute.
Pena Nieto, who sought to cast himself as the leader of a new PRI, called his victory "a fiesta of democracy."
"There is no return to the past," said the youthful, 45-year-old who is married to a soap opera star. "You have given our party a second chance and we will deliver results."
He promised a government that would be democratic, modern and open to criticism. He pledged to fight organized crime and said there would be no pacts with criminals.
"My gratitude tonight is for the millions of Mexican who voted for me," he said. "I will work for all of Mexico ... I will govern for everyone."
Despite a clear victory, more than 60 percent of voters did not support him and it was not the mandate the PRI had anticipated based on the pre-election polls.

I have the same worry.... PAN here but PRI everywhere, higher up. How much help are we going to get, when/if we need it ?
With President and Governor of Jalisco both PRI, it's not likely they will be too interested in helping PAN Presidente Municipal Huerta, and more likely the mountains around here will be developed with more houses, casinos, etc.
