Then came the string of corruption scandals involving PRI governors, 11 of whom are on trial, in jail, under investigation or on the run.

The problems worsened when cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped from a maximum-security prison in 2015.

Although he was recaptured the following year and extradited to the US, the episode remains a major embarrassment.

However, the darkest stain might be the disappearance of 43 students in the southern state of Guerrero in 2014.

The student activists went missing after a clash with local police, in circumstances that remain murky.
