Both parties have already occupied the presidency of the Republic, but since then they have been less, after Morena swept away in 2018 with the current president Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
From then to date, the morenismo and its allies have won 18 lost entities, especially by the PRI, and the opposition as a whole has 14 left, of which today they seek to retain six: Aguascalientes, Durango, Tamaulipas, Hidalgo, Oaxaca and Quintana Roo.
Together, these six entities gather 11 million 701,191 potential voters and for this 21,040 voting booths will be installed at the culmination of processes whose campaigns were dominated by mutual accusations – between candidates and parties – of vote coercion, links with criminal groups and crimes of enrichment or diversions.
In the interim, Morenoite officials and rulers (the head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum; the Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto, and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard) traveled in support of candidates, although at non-business hours and with an eye on 2024, since it was under the pretext of the mandate revocation process –on April 10–, the electricity reform –on April 17– or the elections on June 5.
The opposition, meanwhile, was at risk of fracture, since very early on the PRI governors of Oaxaca, Alejandro Murat, and Hidalgo, Omar Fayad, were accused of handing over “the plaza” to Morena.
The coalition made up of the PAN, the PRI and the PRD is made up of four entities. Together We Make History, the alliance of Morena, the Labor Party (PT) and the Green Party (PVEM) was formed to contend in five states.
