Claudia Sheinbaum, Mexico City’s ex-mayor and the handpicked heir of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, secured a decisive victory in the presidential race. Sheinbaum, an engineer with leftist inclinations, clinched approximately 58% of the votes, surpassing Xóchitl Gálvez, a centrist entrepreneur, who garnered around 29%, and Jorge Álvarez Máynez, a progressive contender, with about 11%.

It’s worth noting that Mexican law limits presidents to serving a single term.
