Democratic politics engineered a sea change among politicians in the linkage between holding a party position and a nationally prominent office. Party militants have increased in number dramatically since 2000. The 1964 electoral law produced three major, long-term consequences on national recruitment, affecting national leadership to the present. The electoral laws helped to weaken PAN as a grass roots party, while strengthening the voice of the national party leadership. Nearly nine out of ten prominent politicians who were elected to congress served as chair of their respective state party organizations after 1934. The most surprising general revelation in the long-term chronological data on party militancy is the extraordinary percentage of politicians who were nominally party members, essentially only registering as a party member, or who were not known to have any party affiliation.
