Female candidates for Morena were announced

The female candidates for Morena were announced following the results of the preferences for the 2024 elections in the states renewing governorships.

In the upcoming elections, Morena will form an alliance with the Green Party of Mexico (PVEM) and the Labor Party (PT).

On this occasion, the definition of candidacies was guided by the gender quota requested by the National Electoral Institute (INE), stating that out of at least 5 candidacies, 9 must be led by women. Therefore, the results of the surveys were as follows.

The Morena candidates were elected based on the parity criterion, as the political organization aims to create gender balance in Mexico.

In the case of the Governorship of Mexico City, Clara Brugada was designated by parity among the Morena candidates.

Clara Brugada, the mayor on leave of Iztapalapa, will be the Morena candidate in the elections for the Head of Government of Mexico City.

Although Brugada was not the best-positioned candidate in the surveys conducted by Morena to define its candidacy, with former chief of the Mexico City Police, Omar García Harfuch, leading, the party decided to lean towards her.

Female candidates for Morena were announced

The Female candidates for Morena:

Alma Alcaraz, chosen to represent Morena in Guanajuato.

Claudia Delgadillo, the candidate representing Morena in Jalisco. She is a member of the PVEM, and even though Carlos Lomelí won the survey with 23.9 percent, Delgadillo obtained 18.6 points.

Margarita González, selected to compete in Morelos.

Rocío Nahle, former Secretary of Energy, will be the Morena candidate in Veracruz.

The candidacies were defined through citizen surveys to compete for the position against opponents from the Broad Front for Mexico, made up of the PAN, PRI, and PRD, and from the Citizen Movement party.

The national leader of Morena, Mario Delgado, first presented the results of the surveys conducted to define the candidate for Yucatán and Veracruz during a press conference in Mexico City.

The announcement of the candidates comes amid an imbalance due to the gender parity criteria issued by the National Electoral Institute (INE), which requires parties to nominate five women and four men in total for the elections.

Therefore, Morena presented a protocol yesterday to provide alternatives for those who emerge as winners but cannot be candidates due to gender parity guidelines.

Following the applied rule, the list of candidates would be as follows:

  • CDMX: Clara Brugada
  • Chiapas: Eduardo Ramírez
  • Guanajuato: Alma Alcaraz
  • Jalisco: Claudia Delgadillo
  • Morelos: Margarita González
  • Puebla: Alejandro Armenta
  • Tabasco: Javier May
  • Veracruz: Rocío Nahle
  • Yucatán: Huacho Díaz Mena
