The Mexican Presidential Election: For Expats, What’s Next?

By Mark Bilker

As the polls tighten leading up to the July 1 presidential election, tensions over its potential outcome and myriad questions about what the outcome may mean to the one million-plus US and Canadian citizens who now call Mexico home have increased exponentially.

Rumors abound, scary stories may be found around every corner, but truly objective analysis of what the immediate future holds is far more difficult to come by.

In an effort to remove the veil of confusion surrounding the election, the San Miguel de Allende chapter of Democrats Abroad will offer, in English, a nonpartisan presentation by Dr Carlos Bravo, director of the journalism program at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (Center for Research and Teaching in Economics), also known as CIDE, on Monday June 4. Bravo is one of Mexico’s leading presidential political observers. The Center for Research is a public research center for social sciences based in Mexico City.

The lecture will be held at Hotel Aldea from 4–6pm. Advance tickets are available at the Biblioteca’s Tesoros gift shop and online at

There will be a Q&A at the conclusion of the formal program.

Professor Bravo, in addition to his work as coordinator and editor of the investigative journalism program at CIDE, is a regular contributor regarding Mexican and US politics on radio and TV programs such as Despierta con Loret, Así las Cosas in W Radio, Atando Cabos with Denise Maerker, La Hora de Opinar with Leo Zuckermann, and Calle Once with Ricardo Raphael.

He has written analysis and op-ed pieces for Letras Libres, El Universal, the New York Times en Español, the Conversation, and Reforma. He has been quoted in interviews on NPR, Televisa, the Washington Post and the New Yorker.
