Is there a candidate or party you prefer or are concerned about?
For Mexico City, I’m with Salomón Chertorivski, without a doubt. He knows the problems of the city, cares about the people, was a very good Health secretary, and an excellent representative.
Brugada is a partisan populist, and Taboada does have links with the so-called “Real Estate cartel”.
For Congress, it’s very important that Morena and allies do not get a majority, their route is to have an all-powerful central government, no counterbalances and to brake the judiciary brand to make it dependent on the ruling party. It would be a setback for Mexican democracy.
The party that has pushed a democratic and progressive agenda -and the one who votes the least with Morena- is Movimiento Ciudadano.
Since our system is hybrid, and turns out to be mostly proportional, my votes for the Chamber of Deputies, Senators and Mexico City Congress will also be for MC.
The Front’s candidates are mostly the outgoing, stiff, political class.
For the borough mayor, it’s a winner-take-all race. We’ve been governed both by Morena and PAN and I don’t see the difference. Will wait and see.
For President, I’m certainly not voting for Sheinbaum, mainly not because of her, but because of the danger of a Maximato (the period 1928-34, in which former president Calles was the real boss, the Maximum Leader of the Revolution), now with López Obrador as the leader of “the fourth transformation”, as he loves to say (the former three being the independence, the reform-victory over the French and the revolution… the man has a big ego)
If Xóchitl has a chance, I’d vote for her; if not, I’ll go Máynez.
