Washington, DC – Less than one year from Mexico’s presidential election, the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and the Inter-American Dialogue welcome the former head of government of Mexico City and three-time candidate, Andrés Manuel López Obrador for an open and frank discussion of his policy proposals and his view on domestic and foreign challenges facing Mexico – including a complicated relationship with Washington.
With a campaign focused on criticisms of corruption and neoliberal policies under the previous three governments, López Obrador and his National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) party represent the Mexican left’s best shot at winning the presidency in recent history. He currently leads the polls in what is sure to be a close race between numerous candidates, to be decided in a single round in July, 2018.
This is the second event in a series related to the Mexico Institute’s coverage of the 2018 Mexican elections, featuring contenders and presidential candidates. The event takes place in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Amphitheater and will be conducted in Spanish.
Simultaneous interpretation equipment will be provided prior to the event on a first come, first serve basis. The event will be webcast live in Spanish only.
The event is organized by the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute, the Inter-American Dialogue & TCMA, Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.
Will a transcript or translation be available?
