Elections in Mexico could bring the first woman to the presidency

The elections next Sunday, June 2, have a historical characteristic: two candidates face each other for victory. They are Claudia Sheinbaum, former mayor of Mexico City and Xóchitl Gálvez, opposition senator and technology entrepreneur

Next Sunday, June 2, two women will compete for the presidency of Mexico: Claudia Sheinbaum and Xótil Gálvez. If any of them wins, a historic change is on the horizon in the political scenario.

The electoral campaign has been marked by strong internal events. However, as the election date approaches, there is speculation about possible changes in Mexico in the event that Xóchitl Gálvez or Claudia Sheinbaum obtain the majority of votes.

Both are at the top of the polls, in a complex process, since Mexicans will also vote to elect 20,708 positions at both the federal and local levels.

Two candidates for one country

Claudia Sheinbaum is the former mayor of Mexico City, the country’s capital. She has maintained a double-digit lead in the polls for months. If she wins, she would continue the process of the current president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and is supported by the ruling party, Morena. “With a scientific background, Sheinbaum has had to walk a fine line to build his own image and emphasize his connection with the president, although he lacks the charisma with which his political ally attracted many.”

The other candidate is Xóchitl Gálvez, an opposition senator and technology entrepreneur, who represents a coalition of parties with little in common throughout history, except their recent opposition to López Obrador.
