Democrats and Autocrats human rights criteria, akin to Governor Carlos A. Juárez in Santiago del Estero or Governor José Murat in Oaxaca (Gibson 2005), can also impose excessive political and reputational bills on presidents, as those governors tend to be considered as unpopular political actors. in contrast, whereas aiding undemocratic governors who workout strength in a relatively much less patrimonial demeanour could result in fewer electoral advantages, it may well even be more cost-effective by way of the reputational and political rate that presidents are prepared to pay. moreover, the truth that non-patrimonial SURs get a decrease proportion of transfers can also be defined by means of ideological elements. From reports carried out in Mexico we all know that presidents who complicated technocratic and neoliberal agendas, reminiscent of Presidents Salinas (1988–94) and Zedillo (1994–2000), shunned empowering and siding with entrenched, conventional, and anti-neoliberal governors, the so-called dinosaurios (dinosaurs), as they systematically antagonistic presidential projects and federal-led initiatives (Centeno 1994; Eisenstadt 2004; Hernández Rodríguez 2008). the implications offered in version three point out that comparable ideological components could have formed presidential habit vis-à-vis SURs through the years of the 1st Panista management. a number of experiences exhibit that Fox’s political weak point, which principally stemmed from the truth that 21 (out of 32) governors belonged to the PRI, and from the inability of majorities in either chambers of Congress, led him to construct legislative and electoral alliances with PRI undemocratic governors (Hernández Rodríguez 2008; Madrazo 2007). those alliances, even though, have been selective in that they have been struck with PRI undemocratic governors who shared and upheld the PAN’s business-oriented, neoliberal, and technocratic worldview, that's, governors who governed states the place political authority was once exercised in a much less patrimonial demeanour. in truth, as proven through Gibson (2005) and Durazo Herrmann (2010), and as proven in Chapter 7, Fox kept away from siding with conventional, patrimonial, and hugely clientelistic undemocratic governors, comparable to the Governor of Oaxaca, as their habit used to be principally incompatible with the PAN’s ideological stance.
