Ivonne Ortega is in the hunt for 2018 PRI presidential nomination

Former Yucatan Gov. Ivonne Ortega Pacheco, possible presidential candidate.

The former governor of Yucatán, Ivonne Aracelly Ortega Pacheco, is considered a possible presidential candidate within the structure of the national PRI political party. This is indicated by the recent Mitofsky Survey “Mexico: Some scenarios towards the 2018 election.”

Although much time remains before the elections, Ortega, a native of Dzemul, Yucatán who is currently a plurinominal federal deputy, figures on the list of prominent PRI politicians who could contend for the coveted presidential nomination.

Also on this list are:

  • Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, Interior Minister
    Manlio Fabio Beltrones, national president of the PRI
    Luis Videgaray Caso, Treasury Secretary
    Eruviel Ávila Villegas, governor of Mexico state
    Jose Antonio Meade Kuribreña, head of SEDESOL

According to the Mitofsky survey, Yucatan’s Ortega would get 15.3 percent of the vote if faced off for the Presidency with Margarita Zavala (PAN), Miguel Angel Mancera (PRD), Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (Morena) and Jaime Rodríguez Calderon ‘El Bronco’ an independent politician who is current governor of Nuevo Leon. In this case, Ortega would tie with Lopez Obrador.

In another scenario, if faced at the polls with the PANista Rafael Moreno Valle, Miguel Angel Mancera, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and independent Jaime Rodríguez Calderon ‘El Bronco’, Ortega would lose the election by eight-tenths to Lopez Obrador.

In the survey that took place November 6-9, the polling firm asked respondents for whom would you vote for President of the Republic; the results indicated the PRI political party is first and reached 20. 8 % of intention of vote; 16. 1% indicated they would vote for none; in third place was the PAN, with 14. 2%.

The PRD is ranked fourth with 11. 7%; Morena reached 8. 8%; and the independent candidate has 4. 7% of the vote.

The survey polled 1,000 Mexicans over 18 years old who are registered voters residing in Mexico in private homes.
Although each percentage has its own associated margin of error, the sample design ensures that at least 95 out of 100 times, the error does not exceed ±1.8% in the estimates.
