Ernesto Zedillo, La construcción de la democracia: Zedillo was chosen as successor by Carlos Salinas de Gortari after the murder of Luis Donaldo Colosio, the original candidate for government, during one of his campaign tours. The son of a family of scarce means, participant in the student movement of 1968 and president almost by accident, he faced one of the greatest economic crises in Mexico’s history. Throughout his term, Ernest Zedillo would grow as a leader and would become an important architect in Mexico’s transition to truly democratic elections in 2000.
