Arturo Damm Arnal—economics and philosophy professor at Panamerican University in Mexico—explains how a coalition of three traditional parties will challenge Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s Morena party. The National Action Party (PAN), the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), and the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) have named Xóchitl Gálvez, an indigenous woman, as their presidential candidate for the June 2024 election. Damm Arnal contends the main difference between Gálvez and Morena candidate Claudia Sheinbaum is that Gálvez understands and favors the role of business in the economy.

For Damm Arnal, although Sheinbaum started the electoral race as the clear favorite, it is still too early to predict the winner. The election’s importance, though, is clear: the upcoming election will be fundamental to recovering the separation of powers in Mexico, which the incumbent administration has undermined.
