Now yes, next Monday the race to participate in the elections on Sunday, June 2, 2024 officially begins with the start of the pre-campaigns in several states of the country, despite the fact that, in reality, the race began a long time ago. Several months.
In these elections, Mexicans will elect, in addition to the presidency, 128 senators, 500 federal deputies, eight governors, 31 local congresses, the head of government of Mexico City and various popularly elected positions, for a total of more than 20 thousand charges.
The race for the presidency will be historic, since for the first time two women and only one man will participate: Claudia Sheinbaum, candidate of Morena and her allies, Xóchitl Gálvez of the Frente Amplio por México (FAM), made up of the PAN, PRD and the PRI ; as well as Samuel García from Movimiento Ciudadano.
