Newsline: Mexican top diplomat starts jostling for 2024 presidential nomination

Mexico’s top diplomat began the open jostling to win the 2024 nomination of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s Morena party on Monday. Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard offered his WhatsApp number for comments from the public Monday, and on Sunday he said he would start touring the country to build support. (https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Mexican-diplomat-starts-jostling-for-2024-17253472.php) His bid, however, is likely to get off to a slow start. On Monday, Ebrard announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. There are several contenders, but there won’t be any primary vote: the party will hold an internal survey to name the nominee. In the past, contenders have raised doubts about the accuracy and impartiality of the party’s surveys. López Obrador can’t run for a second term, but given that the Morena party was built around him, whoever the president supports would get the party’s nomination.
