It is valid to ask the counterfactual question whether the PAN would have won a free election before 2000. My view is that it would not; but the Revolutionary Party of National Unity [PRUN], which was a broader coalition, might well have won in 1940). The state also killed off Catholic trade unions, bolstering the dominant “PNRϩCROM” and “PRM/PRIϩCTM” axes. Thus, the state could enforce anticlerical vetoes.

After a 1929 truce, conflict was renewed two years later as revolutionary authorities implemented fresh anticlerical measures.
