MORENA party thinks to win governorships in Mexican elections

Mexico, Jun 1 (Prensa Latina) The ruling party MORENA will win governorships in the Sunday midterm elections, internal polls predict on Tuesday, whose results are known only through reports.

The complexity of the elections in which 21,000 public offices, included 15 governorships, 30 local assemblies and 500 seats of the Chamber of Deputies, are vying, makes very difficult to carry out polls like those used in the presidential elections, and the parties do their own.

MORENA’s senate leader Ricardo Monreal considers that his party outlines victory in eight governorships, maintains great possibilities of winning in four others, and will lose them in Nuevo Leon, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi.

However, there is no visible possibility to confirm expectations, beyond accepting as valid the perspectives made public by Monreal, facing a striking silence by the other contenders.

One thing is certain, MORENA is the party with the least to lose in terms of governorships, because of 15 states to change governors on Sunday, only Baja California and Baja California Sur are administered by the governing party.

The 13 other states are in the power of the opposition: the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) with seven, the National Action Party (PAN) four, and the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) one, as well as an independent candidate from Nuevo Leon.
