The 2024 Mexican Presidential Elections: A Historic Moment

Mexico is on the brink of a historic moment as it gears up for the largest election in its history, scheduled for June 2, 2024. The election will see voters choosing the president, along with winners of 628 seats in Congress and thousands of local positions.

The leading presidential candidate, Claudia Sheinbaum, backed by the Morena party, is seen as a continuation of the populist leftist leader, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

According to polls, Sheinbaum has enjoyed a comfortable lead with around 59% of the vote. Senator Xóchitl Gálvez, a fierce critic of López Obrador, is running under the Strength and Heart for Mexico coalition and is in second place with around 36% of the vote.

This election is particularly significant as it is almost certain to elect Mexico’s first woman president¹. This is a major shift in a country often marked by its “macho” culture.

However, the election is not without its challenges. Issues such as escalating cartel warfare, the political legacy of President López Obrador, and the long, often tumultuous relationship with the United States are at play. Concerns have been raised about a security crisis that has spiraled under López Obrador.

Despite these challenges, the 2024 Mexican Presidential Election represents a pivotal moment in the country’s history. It is a testament to the evolving political landscape and the increasing role of women in leadership positions. As the world watches, Mexico stands on the cusp of change.
