Roberto Madrazo, former governor of the state of Tabasco, has won the first stage in becoming the presidential candidate for the PRI, Mexico's largest political party, currently in opposition. His nearest rival, Arturo Montiel Rojas, dropped out of the race last month, leaving the way clear for Madrazo. The PRI governed Mexico for seventy years until its defeat by President Vicente Fox's PAN party in 2000.
