If you want a meeting with Mexican presidential candidate Claudia Sheinbaum, you need to reach out to Luisa Abreu.
A journalist by training, she has worked with Sheinbaum since 2015, when Abreu became the chief of staff of the then-mayor of Tlalpan. After Sheinbaum was elected mayor of the capital district in 2018, Abreu was appointed Director General for Institutional Organization but, in practice, served as Sheinbaum’s private secretary.
Abreu was among the first Mexico City government officials to join Sheinbaum’s primary campaign for the ruling MORENA party. She is a key member of Sheinbaum’s inner circle, which also includes political coordinator Adan Lopez, territorial liaison Ricardo Monreal, spokesperson Gerardo Fernandez and electoral strategist Ivan Silva.
“Her constant presence alongside the candidate during all public appearances underscores her indispensable role in the day-to-day operations,” says Horizon Engage analyst Alexia Bautista. “While her primary focus may not be policy advice, Abreu participates in nearly every meeting and enjoys Sheinbaum’s unwavering trust.”
