This Wednesday the Morena party announced the preliminary results of its internal polls by which the 16 candidates who will run for the different mayoralties in Mexico City were announced, six of them will seek to repeat the position.
The councilors who will seek re-election are Clara Brugada in Iztapalapa, Armando Quintero in Iztacalco, Francisco Chiguil in Gustavo A. Madero, Vidal Llarenas in Azcapotzalco, Juan Carlos Acosta in Xochimilco and Víctor Hugo Romo in Miguel Hidalgo. That is, 6 of the 11 current Morenoist leaders seek to be in charge of their demarcations for another three years.
