MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican senator Xochitl Galvez will on Sunday officially become the 2024 presidential candidate of an alliance of opposition parties, representatives of the alliance said on Thursday during an event.

On Wednesday, Galvez effectively secured the candidacy when a key party in the alliance backed her at the expense of its own contender.
