To access a candidacy by popular election, it is not necessary to be a member of the governing bodies of that party, but joining them will allow you the option so that, in your capacity as a national congressman, you will be elected a member of the National Council.
As part of this instance, in August 2023, he could access the Morenoite national leadership that Mario Delgado, Morenoite president, and Citlalli Hernández, general secretary, must leave that month.
Morena offered to have results on Monday the 8th, the day after her internal elections last weekend, where 3,000 national congressmen were elected, who in turn are district coordinators, councilors and state congressmen. But she postponed results for Tuesday, August 9, and finally offered to have them this Thursday, August 11.
Of the morenista presidential candidates, López Hernández was the only one who contended for a position in the III National Congress that will meet on September 17 and 18.
Instead, the head of government Claudia Sheinbaum and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard only voted in the Moreno internal election, and the leader of the Morena senators, Ricardo Monreal, did not vote or register as a candidate.
However, it is outlined that they will have close operators within the Morena bodies, since they were unofficially elected as district coordinators and therefore won their space as councilors and state congressmen and national congressmen.
In their capacity as state councillors, they may access the presidency, general secretary or State Executive Committee. As national congressmen they can be elected as one of the 300 national councilors, and join the National Executive Committee (CEN).
According to preliminary results, close to Sheinbaum will be, among others, the secretary of the city government, Martí Batres, who won his place in the 15th district of the Benito Juárez mayor’s office, and former senator Dolores Padierna in the 12th district located in the Cuauhtémoc mayor’s office.
