Morena Party Dominates Quintana Roo Election

Quintana Roo has shown its support for the Morena party and its allies in the recent elections held on June 2. Claudia Sheinbaum, the presidential candidate for Morena, received 70 percent of the votes, with a total of 160,821 votes within 24 hours. Preliminary Results Program (PREP) data suggests that senatorial positions will remain with Morena and PAN, with Anahí González and Gino Segura from the Let's Keep Making History coalition securing 66 percent of the votes.

The Let's Keep Making History alliance also retained control over federal deputies. Initial results from municipal elections indicate that the presidents of Benito Juárez, Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Tulum, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Bacalar, and José María Morelos have been successful. Solidaridad, Cozumel, and Lázaro Cárdenas are expected to remain under the control of the Morena alliance, with Othón P. Blanco going to Movimiento Ciudadano.

According to the Ieqroo, with 19 percent of the records calculated within 24 hours, local deputies for districts 1 through 15 will be from Morena and its allies, including Alberto Batun, Andrea González, Rubén Carrillo, Alexa Murguia, and Hugo Alday.

The election day in Quintana Roo was marked by significant delays in the opening of polling stations and high voter turnout. There were complaints about the lack of ballots at special stations, with some voters in Cancun accusing the officials in charge of these special polls of theft for denying them the right to vote. Despite these issues, many voters were able to cast their votes before the polling stations closed at 6 p.m.
