In recent weeks, the electoral process to renew the governments of the State of Mexico and Coahuilaon June 4, 2023, so the question has arisen Who are the independent applicants who seek to join the fight?
Although Alejandra del Moral Vela and Delfina Gómez Álvarez are the names that resonate the most to fight for the governorship of the State of Mexico, while Armando Guadiana, Manolo Jiménez and Ricardo Mejía appear among the preferences in Coahuila, people are also interested in knowing the rest of the profiles that could appear on the list and that do not have the support of any party.
And it is that the aforementioned names are the pre-candidates of Morena, of the PT, as well as of the ‘Va por México’ coalition made up of the PRI, PAN, PRD.
Who are the independent candidates for the governorships of Edomex and Coahuila?
However, little has been said about the independent aspirants who also want to fight for the governorships of Edomex and Coahuilawhich we present below.
Last December, the General Council of the Electoral Institute of the State of Mexico (IEEM) accepted the applications of only four of the eight citizens who presented protest documents to become independent candidates for the governorship of said entity.

- Abelardo Gorostleta Uribe
He is a restaurant entrepreneur, who is originally from Toluca. This is not the first time that he seeks to compete for the governorship because in 2017 he also tried, but his dreams were frustrated when he was unable to collect the number of citizen support signatures required by law.
- Ana Elena Medina Pacheco
The last candidate served as an electoral adviser for the IEEM municipal board in Nextlalpan in 1996.
These four applicants will have until February 12 to gather 373,000 signatures of citizen support to obtain formal registration as a candidate, and with that, be able to contend for the governorship in the State of Mexico.
On the other hand, in the case of Coahuilathe General Council of the Electoral Institute of the entity declared the writings of intent to independent candidacies of only three applicants admissible, which are:
