 Mexico City's governmental secretary, Patricia Mercado Castro, is a well-know Mexican feminist politician and a potential successor to Mexico City's Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera, although in an interview with Spanish paper El País she dissimises it.

The founder and former president and the 2006 presidential candidate of the extinct Socialdemocratic Party says she would like to belong to the new presidential team in the next 2018 elections.
