The concern we now have is nobody truly knows what kind. of Sheinbaum they're going to get when she becomes president. She is very near to Lopez Obrador, but will she stay. that close? Or will she pursue her own agenda? And if she does,. she certainly has an interest and also a great deal of experience with. the energy industry, and possibly the changes we see are not as. drastic as we would have seen under Lopez Obrador.

Before the election, everyone had priced in a. extension of comparable policies with similar institutional. restraints on the executive.

Policy continuity will mostly prevail under a Sheinbaum. federal government, particularly when it comes welfare policy. In a. speech shortly after the initial results were announced, Dr. Sheinbaum stated that her government will 'dedicate public funds. to continue President Lopez Obrador's social programs'. However. she plainly has one eye on assuring financiers who are. worried about the health of Mexico's public financial resources, mentioning. that 'our federal government will be austere ... and fiscally responsible'.

One key location of distinction with the Amlo (Lopez Obrador). administration is most likely to be energy policy. While Dr. Sheinbaum said that she will promote 'energy sovereignty',. possibly a nod to (for now) continuing to offer support for the. state oil company Pemex, her eco-friendly qualifications. shone through as she required a concentrate on renewable resource.
