In a historic electoral process, Claudia Sheinbaum of Morena is on the verge of becoming the first female president of Mexico and North America, according to initial quick count results from the National Electoral Institute (INE). This landmark victory follows a significant voter turnout on June 2nd, with millions of Mexicans participating in the election.

Representing the “Sigamos Haciendo Historia” coalition, Sheinbaum secured between 58.3% and 60.7% of the vote. Her main opponent, Gálvez of PAN, PRI, and PRD, received between 26.6% and 28.6%, while MC candidate Jorge Álvarez Máynez garnered between 9.9% and 10.8%.

Sheinbaum’s groundbreaking win has sparked spontaneous celebrations among her supporters. In Mexico City’s Zócalo, a large screen, stage, and sound system have been set up in front of the National Palace to accommodate the growing crowd of Morena supporters. Outside the Hilton Hotel on Avenida Juárez, a large number of people have gathered, eagerly awaiting Sheinbaum’s appearance from her campaign headquarters.

In Jalisco, Pablo Lemus, the candidate from Movimiento Ciudadano (MC), has declared victory in the gubernatorial race. At a press conference, Lemus cited three surveys showing him with a 20-point lead. He emphasized MC’s strong performance in key municipalities, including Guadalajara, Tlajomulco, Lagos de Moreno, and Encarnación de Díaz.

Lemus called for constructive dialogue with his opponents, Laura Haro and Claudia Delgadillo, and outlined his plans to tour all 125 municipalities in Jalisco to thank his supporters and address their needs once he assumes office.

In local news, Morena has lost the mayoral race of Puerto Vallarta. Despite a strong showing in previous elections, voters opted for change, placing Morena in third place. The Green Party’s Luis Munguía emerged as the front-runner with 39% of the vote, followed by Ramón Guerrero of Movimiento Ciudadano. This outcome ends Morena’s three-year period in power and reflects growing dissatisfaction with the current administration. Despite federal support, Morena failed to deliver significant improvements to the city, leading to their defeat. Munguía celebrated the anticipated victory at the city’s malecón, where hundreds of his supporters gathered.

In Bahía de Banderas, Héctor Santana García, candidate of the “Sigamos Haciendo Historia” coalition, announced a decisive victory over Jaime Cuevas Tello of the “Fuerza y Corazón Por Nayarit” coalition.

These election results signify major political shifts in Mexico, highlighting significant victories for the “Sigamos Haciendo Historia” coalition and the MC party. While these results are conclusive, they have not yet been officially confirmed. Next week, we will have more detailed information about the elections in Mexico, Jalisco, Nayarit, Vallarta, and Bahía de Banderas.
