This article lists political parties in Mexico.

Mexico has a multi-party system, which means that there are more than two dominant political parties.

Nationally, there are four large political parties that dominate: the MORENA, the PAN, and the PRI. Other smaller political parties survive in isolation or by forming local coalitions with any of the big three.

National parties

Mexico has ten nationally recognized political parties by the Federal Electoral Institute.

Under Mexican law, parties are listed in the order in which they were first registered, thus:

In terms of their congressional representation and share of the national vote, only PRI, PAN and MORENA can be considered major parties.
