Democracy in focus: Analizando el futuro político de México

A pivotal political event is on the horizon in Mexico. Assuming no surprises from a third-party candidate, on Sunday, June 2, voters will head to the polls to elect the first woman president. The election is also expected to be one of the largest in the country's history, with more than 20,000 positions up for popular vote.

Border Investigative Reporter Gustavo Solís breaks down the impact of Mexico's upcoming election in our region during KPBS' first virtual bilingual conversation with politics experts.

Invited panelists include:

  • Alejandro Sánchez Flores, a policy analyst and graduate student at Yale University
  • Cecilia Farfán-Méndez, with the Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation, UCSD and co-founder of the Mexico Violence Resource Project
  • Kenia Zamarripa, vice president, international and public affairs at the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce
