About our Claudia Sheinbaum news

Latest news on Claudia Sheinbaum, a Mexican politician, scientist, and academic who is running for President of Mexico in the 2024 election. She was the head of government of Mexico City from 2018 until 2023, when she resigned to seek the nomination of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) party. She is the first woman and the first Jewish person to be elected to lead Mexico City, a position equivalent to that of a state governor.

Sheinbaum has a Ph.D. in energy engineering from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and has authored over 100 articles and two books on topics related to energy, the environment, and sustainable development. She contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. She also served as Secretary of the Environment under future president Andrés Manuel López Obrador during his tenure as Head of Government from 2000 to 2006.

Sheinbaum is considered a close ally of López Obrador and shares his leftist vision for Mexico. Sheinbaum secured the Morena's presidential nomination over her nearest rival, former foreign secretary Marcelo Ebrard, on September 6, 2023. She is favored to win the 2024 election, according to polling conducted in 2023. If elected, Sheinbaum would be the first woman to serve as President of Mexico.
