Mexico Elects First Female President

Mexico has elected its first female president. Voting for the six-year term president in Mexico, a nation with a population of 130 million, concluded at 6 PM local time on the 2nd.

The election results were announced sequentially starting from 9 PM local time.

While the incumbent president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has a high approval rating in the 60% range, he was unable to run for reelection due to Mexico’s single six-year single-term policy.

The candidates for this election included Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo from the ruling left-wing National Regeneration Movement (Morena), Xóchitl Gálvez from the right-wing opposition alliance, and Jorge Álvarez Máinez from the moderate left Citizen’s Revolution Party.

Despite the fierce battle, Sheinbaum was elected as Mexico’s first female president. This marks a huge feat for the new president of Mexico as the country has always had a strong male-dominated culture (Machismo) since the federal government was established in 1824.

Sheinbaum will officially take office on October 1 and remain in power until 2030. Mexican voters also elect about 20,000 public officials, including senators for a six-year term, lower house members for a three-year term, governors (including the mayor of Mexico City), district chiefs, and local council members.

During the elections and even on voting day, various incidents were reported at polling stations, following the deaths of about 20 major candidates and campaign workers who were presumably attacked by gang members demonstrating their influence before the election.

According to local media such as El Universal and El Sol de Puebla, in Coyoacán, Puebla state, intruders at a polling station threatened voters and election officials and shot two people. One of the victims died while receiving treatment at the hospital. On the night before, a city council candidate was found dead just hours before the election. A shooting also occurred at a polling station today. So far, two people have been confirmed dead.
