Claudia Sheinbaum, Mexico’s first female leader


Claudia Sheinbaum, who will become Mexico’s first female leader in the country’s more than 200 years of independence, rose to the presidency promising continuity.

The 61-year-old former left-wing mayor of Mexico City ran a disciplined campaign, capitalizing on the popularity of her predecessor, before emerging victorious in the elections, according to a quick official count.

But with his current victory, Mexicans are eagerly waiting to see how Sheinbaum, a very different figure from his mentor and current president Andres Manuel López Obrador, can assert himself.

Although she was politically close to López Obrador and shared many of his ideas about the government’s role in fighting inequality, she was less combative and more data-oriented.

Levels of violence

Continued high levels of violence in Mexico will be one of the most pressing challenges facing Sheinbaum after he takes office on October 1. During her election campaign, she repeatedly said she would expand the paramilitary National Guard created by Lopez Obrador and continue her strategy of targeting social ills that make many young Mexicans easy targets for recruitment by cartels .

“Let’s be clear, this does not mean an iron fist, nor wars, nor tyranny,” Sheinbaum said of his approach to dealing with criminal gangs at his latest campaign event. We will work to strengthen a strategy to address the causes and continue to make progress towards the elimination of impunity. »
