Mexico’s Mid-Term Elections: What’s at Stake and What to Expect

On June 6, Mexicans will participate in the largest election in the country’s history where they will choose candidates for over 21,000 offices. The election marks the halfway point in President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s term and is widely referred to as a referendum on his first three years in office. The outcome of this election will determine the extent to which López Obrador can implement his agenda and national reforms. With a weak and divided opposition, López Obrador’s ruling party, Morena, is expected to maintain control in Congress.

Please join the Mexico Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center of the Atlantic Council on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 3:00pm eastern time for a presentation of the latest polling data, followed by expert commentary on what to expect on June 6 and the implications for the López Obrador government.
