Mexico Government Close to Keeping Congress Super-Majority: Poll


Source: Bloomberg

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s ruling coalition is close to retaining its lower house super-majority in Mexican midterm elections, according to Parametria’s last pre-election poll, in what would be a stronger result than some are expecting.

The president’s Morena party will hold 48% of the lower house of Congress with 239 seats, slightly short of its current 253, Parametria said in a survey shared with Bloomberg News. Lopez Obrador’s coalition will take 315 seats when combined with its allied Green Party and Worker’s Party, just below the 334 required for the super-majority, according to the poll.
