The cases of Gabino Cué in Oaxaca, Moreno Valle in Puebla or Malova in Sinaloa worked because there was an attractive figure for the voter and an acceptable figure for the parties in the alliance. That's not the case in Mexico State. Without the possibility of Josefina Vázquez Mota, the option of Eruviel passed over and turned into the Mexiquense Malova now discarded, there is only Alejandro Encinas. I don't think he has much chance either, but anyone else will be washed away by Peña Nieto's powerful electoral machinery.
