On Wednesday, May 29, before a full Zócalo in Mexico City, the candidate of the Let’s Keep Making History coalition, Dr. Claudia Sheinbaum, pledged to give my soul, my life and the best of myself for the well-being of the people of Mexico, the dignity of the Republic and the country. I commit to preserving the legacy of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, I commit to being a good president who lives up to the greatness of our history and the greatness of our people.”

The Electrical Workers Union of Mexico was there!





Sheinbaum urged her audience to return this Sunday night to celebrate the triumph of the movement, just as they did six years ago with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.


We will maintain the obligatory division between economic and political power. We will not submit to any foreign economic power, no matter how powerful it may be. We will always defend and transform the country.”
