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.”

Sheinbaum urged the attendees 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. Sheinbaum outlined Morena’s political project in which the division of economic power and political power will be strengthened; and the welfare state will be deepened. “I am committed to continuing with López Obrador’s legacy,” she concluded with a standing ovation at the mention of the president.

“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.”
