Sheinbaum, a Mexican advisor, has said that Sheinbaum will prioritize public access to internet.

MEXICO CITY, (Reuters) – After taking office, Mexican President-elect Claudia Sheinbaum will prioritize internet access for the public. This was revealed by one of her advisers on Wednesday.

Jose Merino is Sheinbaum’s advisor on digital strategy. He said at a conference the government must cover areas of the nation that are not covered by private telecoms.

Sheinbaum, who won the election last Sunday by winning over half the votes, is expected to assume office on October 1.

Merino stated that a national telecoms policy would be implemented on a medium-long term basis. He also noted that all Mexicans have the right to a free and open data access.
