They were originally a small Green party, but it was not democratic inside, rather more like a monarchy, and the son, "El Niño Verde", succeded the father, who was somehow an ecologist supporter, as party leader.
Now it's a party lead by rich "kids" in their late 30s, the "Green Boy" and his cronies.
They have been very shrewd in selling their support to big party candidates (with the father, they supported Fox; with the son, they supported Madrazo, and PRI). Now they have an unholy alliance with the big networks with a totally right wing agenda:
-Death penalty for homicide and kidnapping.
-Constitutional amendment to state life starts at conception.
-The government to give school vouchers, so people can send their children to private schools "so they can learn English and computing".
-The government to give medical vouchers, to be exchanged at drugstores, instead of giving directly the medicine for free.
-Unlimited access of parties to television spots (they -the fake Greens- have circunvented the law by having magazines property of Televisa announce and praise their proposals).
They have been expelled from the international Green Parties association. They are the closest thing to Berlusconi's Forza Italia you can imagine.
A few weeks ago I wrote that, the way Mexicans parties behave, there should be an "against" vote instead of a "for" vote, and that I'd certainly would cast my "against" vote against PVEM, the so-called Greens. They make me vomit.
