Mexican election officials have announced that Claudia Sheinbaum, the left-wing candidate, has won the presidential election in the country.

Reuters reported on Monday, June 3, that Sheinbaum secured approximately 58 to 60 percent of the votes in the Mexican presidential election.

The report described her victory as a significant milestone, noting that it occurred in a country known for its “macho” culture, characterized by boastful masculinity.

Sheinbaum, who served as mayor of Mexico City from 2018 to 2023, will begin her six-year term in October.

It is worth noting that Sheinbaum is an ally of the current leftist president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and a member of the ruling party, the National Regeneration Movement (Morena).

The 61-year-old former mayor of Mexico City consistently led in polls against her center-right opponent, Xóchitl Gálvez, also 61.
