MEXICO CITY (AP) The former mayor of Mexico City will be the dominant ruling partys presidential candidate, moving the country closer to electing its first ever female president next year.

The decision driven by polls of Morena party members means that Claudia Sheinbaum will run as the partys candidate in the June presidential election. Mexicos constitution bars outgoing President Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador from a second six-year term.

Morena national council president, Alfonso Durazo said that Sheinbaum beat former Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, by double figures in five party surveys.

Sheinbaum is a close ally of the popular Lpez Obrador and as Morenas candidate she will enjoy a distinct advantage in June.

I'm excited, Sheinbaum said, thanking each of her competitors by name with the exception of Ebrard who was not present. I feel very proud, very honored to have been part of this movement since its inception.
