Political scientists consulted by Political Expansion They consider that being a president who enjoys a citizen approval greater than 50%, he would not have to summon Mexicans to express their support for him, however, he does so for an electoral purpose and that is summarized in the succession of 2024.
“The president is involved in the logic of the next presidential election. He learned in the PRI that if one does not keep the electoral structures mobilized, these structures look for other loyalties, so what the president seeks is to maintain that link with these structures to have them at the end of Morena, ”says political scientist Gustavo López Montiel, professor from the Tec de Monterrey School of Government.

These types of calls made by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador are usually attended by citizens on their own feet, but thousands are also beneficiaries of social programs such as the Pension for Older Adults, Young People Building the Future, scholarship students and working mothers, areas where it is found the social base of the federal president.
In the march on November 27, streets near Paseo de la Reforma, from where the mobilization began, were turned into parking lots. Buses from all parts of the City took citizens to that area.
