Today, the mayor of Tijuana, Montserrat Caballero Ramírez, revealed that she will run for the mayor's office of Tijuana in the upcoming elections, whose registrations will take place next week.
The first woman to ever be democratically elected to be the municipal president of Tijuana, Mexico's fourth most important economy, revealed that she has met all requirements and has made the necessary procedures to register through the MORENA process which will take place from November 20 to November 22.
"I have met all the requirements. I have done the courses that are required, and I stated my intention (presented at the end of October at the State Electoral Institute and the MORENA leadership of the state) and I will register next week," the mayor, who according to polls is in the lead among voters, said.
Caballero Ramírez stated that, so far, very few officials in her municipal administration have said that they want to run as candidates to be elected for something; should this be the case, they will need to resign immediately from their position.
Regarding asking for a license to run as a candidate, she said that it will need to be done step by step.
"Leaving behind ego, I am leading in the polls. I have the right to reelection and the issue of me being a woman is a safeguard. So, there are a lot of things that could concern me about this election, we are going to get it, I will register next week," she said.
