In the forecasts established by the organizing committee, strict security measures are anticipated in the area of the event, which is why the closure of avenues, perimeter streets and even pedestrian routes are taking place as you are reading this in the northern end of the city, near the exit to the Mérida to Progreso highway and Calle 60 north.

The areas of Francisco de Montejo, Xcumpich, Cordemex and Sodzil Norte will be heavily surveyed by agents of the Estado Mayor Presidencial, SSP Federal Police and private security staff hired by the Gran Museo del Mundo Maya.

The INE announced that the candidates will be arriving to Mérida without a schedule, nor previous time required, but their teams, coordinators and guests arrived since Sunday June 10. Each candidate and their staff will select their own headquarters-hotel and the corresponding facilities to hold meetings, conferences or other kind of events with their team of advisers.

Among the provisions of the organizing committee is also established that each presidential candidate must have their own transportation team, but always guarded by agents of Public Security Secretariat and the Estado Mayor Presidencial, who will be responsible for the logistics of the event along with the INE.

In the same order established for the trials, the arrival of the four candidates is scheduled for the venue of the event on Tuesday 12.

In this way, Jaime Rodríguez Calderón must arrive at the venue of the event at 19:40 p.m. At 19:50 the presence of José Antonio Meade Kuribreña is expected; at 20:00 the arrival of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and finally, at 8:10 Ricardo Anaya Cortés arrival is scheduled.

As in the previous formats, the duration of the debate will be 113 minutes and the candidates will leave in the same order in which they arrived, to subsequently move to pre-established spaces to offer each press conference or issue a statement, situations in which the INE no longer intervenes.

The 12 INE National Councilors will attend the debate too, and the representatives of the political parties accredited before the electoral judge will also be invited, as well as area directors, logistics personnel and media support.

So far the agency has not confirmed the number of journalists accredited to the third debate, but it is estimated that it could exceed 500 media outlets, including local, national and foreign reporters.

According to the INE, the second presidential debate, held in the city of Tijuana, Baja California in May, a total of 862 communicators from 250 media were accredited.
