Although there is still more than a year to carry out the elections for the presidency of the Republic in 2024, the Morena board is more active than ever. And it is that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador himself has led to an intense dispute over the candidacy of the icing party.
Despite the fact that he has repeatedly said that the candidate will be chosen through a poll, the truth is that the head of the federal Executive has clearly opted for the current head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, whom the Tabasco politician sees him as a daughter, according to different analysts.
But in his eagerness not to want to “impose” the candidate in the succession, what was previously popularly known as the “finger”, López Obrador has mentioned other names such as Marcelo Ebrard, and lately that of the Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto López, as possible presidential “bottle caps”.

Marcelo Ebrard has openly said that he will seek Morena’s presidential candidacy through the party’s internal process, for which he has insisted that it must be a credible, reliable process and that the “equal floor” between the contenders be guaranteed.
