She is also the first Jewish person to hold this office in Mexico. Her victory marks a significant milestone in Mexican politics, emphasizing the growing role of women in leadership positions.

Sheinbaum is closely associated with the current president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and represents the left-wing Morena party. Her campaign focused on continuing the social and economic reforms initiated by López Obrador, which have been credited with lifting millions out of poverty . Her election is seen as a significant step towards gender equality in Mexico and is expected to bring a new perspective to the country’s leadership, particularly in addressing issues related to social justice and environmental sustainability.
